Why Video-Based Content Like Trala and Fender Play Doesn’t Work

Trala and Fender Play use a video-based teaching methodology. Videos are easy to watch, but just like you can’t learn to play basketball watching a video, you can’t learn to play an instrument watching a video either. Videos are good for informational learning (notes and names), but tend to move too fast for beginners trying to build new skills and practice new songs.

Moosiko takes a different approach by telling you exactly how to play and practice, breaking songs down into bite sized, step-by-step pieces. Read all about our proprietary Moosiko Method™.
