It has been six months since we discovered Fender Play. A guided online learning program that teaches new guitar players to get playing in minutes. We were instant fans and have been sharing our experience a long the way.
I asked Dallin yesterday what he’s thought of the program. We broke it down into pros and cons, to keep everything completely transparent.
The videos are fun and the instructors are personable.
The videos are top-quality 4K multi-camera video production and delivers a clear and unified curriculum.
The program is organized and broken down into short lessons.
He was able to start playing riffs the first day.
Fender Play is fun and song-based. They help you play the songs you love by breaking them down to the basics first.
Customized curriculum is based on your musical preference. (He chose electric guitar).
The subscription is affordable and they even have sales, so watch for those!
They have created a Facebook group for students to join to ask questions and find out other useful information.
Sometimes he feels like the videos go too fast and he isn’t memorizing the chords as fast as he should.
Botton line: Will be continuing on the next 6 months with Fender Play? Hands down, YES.
So instead of giving up on playing the guitar right now, he has the opportunity to go at his own pace, to fit the lessons into his schedule, and to still learn a new skill.
And if he has a question, we work together to figure out the answer. Dallin’s love of music has brought him more confidence than any other life experience. Once a super shy kid, he now goes out of his way to sign up for band competitions, to try out for district music festivals and enjoys playing in front of audiences.
For this reason, we will support him learning ANY new instrument that he shows an interest for.
