What is Fender Play?
Fender Play is a guided online learning program that teaches beginners to get playing in minutes. With hundreds of instructional videos and hands-on exercises, Fender Play walks new players down a learning path based on their musical preferences. The curriculum is designed so that after a few short lessons a player will be able to learn something new, whether it’s a skill, a recognizable riff or a full song.
Fender Play incorporates top-quality, 4K multi-camera video production to deliver a clear and unified curriculum, with an aesthetic that aligns to the overall Fender brand. Among the production elements incorporated for optimum teaching are a split-screen and an over-the-shoulder angle that provides a unique and valuable perspective for the new player.
How does Fender Play work?
New players will be asked questions about their instrument preference and interest in style. Based on those answers, Fender Play curates a personalized learning path. The path brings you step-by-step from the basics of learning to play, through the skills and techniques that make up the specific style you are focused on.
