12 Days of Amazing Gift Ideas | Day 6: Fender Play: The Gift That Keeps On Giving + A Giveaway!



This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fender Play for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


Are your kids hard to buy Holiday gifts for? Mine didn’t use to be, but the older they get, the harder it is.

Back when they were little, the newest and hottest toy in the store and on the shelves is what they wanted. It went like this: they saw a commercial and the commercial made them want the toy. A tad bit annoying at the time, but way easier, am I right?

Older kids being hard to buy for isn’t because they’re being difficult. (Well, usually.)

With my kids, part of it is because the older they get, the less material things they realize they need or want. They’re more into experiences and gifts that really mean something.

The other part of it is my preference as the gift giver. I want to focus on quality instead of quantity and give them something I know they’ll love and use.

Back in August and September, I shared with you a platform my oldest son was using to learn to play the guitar. It’s called Fender Play and has been an invaluable resource for him.

Well, come to find out, my youngest son (who’s 13) also wants to learn to play the guitar. So that makes Fender Play the perfect Holiday gift for him! It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Not only will he learn to play guitar and pick up a skill that is just downright fun, but it will also give him confidence and help him develop math and coordination skills. Learning to play the guitar goes a lot further than just the fact that you learned an instrument.

About Fender Play

Fender Play is the perfect platform for both beginners and returning guitar players. It’s very easy to use! Plus, the lessons keep kids coming back for more since they are song- and riff-based using popular and instantly recognizable songs. No child wants to play the same chords over and over again from songs they’ve never heard. They’ll lose interest in a heartbeat.

Using the Fender Play platform, your child can start playing a song in minutes and track their performance.

Here’s some info on how Fender Play works:

  • The curriculum was created by experts and the leading guitar brand.
  • The curriculum is based on your musical preference, so if you like folk, you learn folk. If you like rock, you learn to play rock.
  • Fender Play helps you learn to play the songs you love by breaking it down into the basics first.
  • You can access the Fender Play dashboard via your computer or their app.

You can read about my oldest son’s progress with Fender Play here. I was super impressed, to say the least.

    Looks like you guys are having an amazing adventure, Julie!

  5. id give to my son is who id give it to i bought him a drum set over the summer now i need some headphones

  6. This would be perfect for my son! He keeps trying to teach himself just by listening to music. It’s not working so well. 😉

  7. I am so excited about this contest!! My son has been teaching himself guitar but I didn’t know Fender had easy learning lessons. He’s asking for his first electric guitar for Christmas so this is perfect! 🙂

  8. My daughter actually asked for an electric guitar for Christmas but there simply isn’t money to buy her something like that this year. So it would be pretty amazing if I won.

  9. This is so awesome! My 13 year old Granddaughter is in a band, and I know she’d LOVE a Guitar like this! Thanks for this chance 🙂

  10. I would love to have this,I have always wanted to learn to play and have been a big music fan my whole life!

  11. I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar so would probably keep this for myself.

  12. This is a great package for a young beginner! Would keep this in the family so the young ones can learn to play as well.

  13. I would honestly either give this to my dad or keep it for myself. My dad already has at least one guitar so I am tempted to keep it to learn how to play!

  14. I use to play guitar for a very long time.I got in debt 15 years ago when layed off from a job.so first thing I sold were my guitars to pay bills.I miss playing just never has enough extra me money to play again or purchase .At that time I owned a fender gemini lll acoustic and a fender strat.always felt a piece of me was missing with how I enjoyed playing.music warms the soul.

  15. My oldest son would love this, so I’d gift it to him. I’d of course get to play it while he’s in school…lol. Thanks!
