At Winter NAMM 2019, we were thrilled and honored to have Windstars winning the Best in Show award. It was selected by George Quinlin of Quinlin & Fabish, Illinois.
“Nuvo has developed a line of pre-band instruments, and they perform much like traditional band instruments. They require a certain amount of air to get them to play, and it’s not designed to replace what’s already happening to recruit kids into music programs. And it’s not designed to replace traditional flutes and clarinets and brass instruments, either. It’s really something that’s totally new and in-between. It has a purpose simply to get kids excited about playing wind instruments.”
