Give the Gift of Music this Holiday Season with Fender Play

If your kids are anything like mine, they don't need many toys for Christmas! Our living room very closely resembles a toy store. Because we have an abundance of THINGS, we would happily welcome an experience or an activity as a gift this holiday season!

For several years we have encouraged our loved ones to give our children gifts that are not the norm, and it turns out that those gifts are always the favorite presents! Memberships to the zoo or a museum gives us a year's worth of adventures. Gift cards to a movie theater or a restaurant gives us a much needed family night out. Gifting them necessities for their favorite sports and activities are always a hit. Those presents are gifts of EXPERIENCES, and that's what my kids will remember!

And now, you can easily give the gift of music, thanks to Fender Play!

Music really is good for the soul! My husband and I were raised with music in our lives, so we encourage our own children to pursue music. I grew up singing, and I played the flute and piccolo for many years. Grant is also a singer, and he played trombone for a few years. Although he no longer plays trombone, he did teach himself how to play guitar, and he's very good. He has jam sessions with his friends every weekend, and even has a YouTube channel!

All of our children inherited our musical ability. Dylan is in chorus, and he learned how to play both the trumpet and violin. He did have to make a choice between chorus and band this year, and chorus won, but he does have a guitar that he's learning to play. Lexie is also in chorus, and she plays the flute in band. Lily sings constantly, while dancing or flipping through the house. 

Liam, however, is the most musically inclined. I don't know if it has something to do with that extra chromosome, but he is very into music. He loves to dance every time he hears a tune, he plays with his toy instruments all day every day, he puts his ear to instruments to hear the vibration, and he, unlike other kids, actually strums the guitar rather than plucking at it. Although he's young, he has a unique gift of music, and we are encouraging it!

Learn to play guitar!

Did you know that learning to play an instrument actually has a lot of benefits? 

  • It can improve your memory.
  • It enhances hand-eye coordination skills.
  • It improves math, reading and comprehension skills.
  • It teaches discipline.
  • It relieves stress and can make you a happier person.
  • It improves listening skills.
  • It helps improve concentration.

It makes complete sense that learning an instrument can be very beneficial for anybody, but especially for kids! When considering an instrument to play, the guitar seems to be a popular choice. Here are the benefits of playing guitar:

So let's say you already have that guitar. Will you actually learn how to play or will you keep putting it off until you finally give up? Don't let that happen! Fender Play can help!

  1. What a great idea. My husband plays the guitar (he played in a band throughout college and graduate school), and now we have an electronic drum kit that's taking up our living room; my husband is starting to teach my son how to play drums. We love music. My only problem right now is the drum kit is taking up the space where we usually put our Christmas tree. We may have to opt for a much smaller tree :)

    1. That is awesome! I think learning to play an instrument is so important. Hope you made some room for that tree! XOXO


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
