WindStars launches “Play Along” lessons online

In view of the recent situation with COVID-19 and school closures, WindStars launches free “Play Along” online lessons to offer parents a virtual music class for their children. The lessons are based on the WindStars music curriculum, an award-winning, pre-band music program with books. It is a simple, effective, and affordable way for elementary school kids to experience the joy of playing music together. The lessons start in WindStars 1,”Sound Before Sight” and will progress through the other two levels.

WindStars uses Nuvo instruments that are inexpensive, lightweight, durable and easy to maintain. The instruments are musically authentic and are designed to teach skills that help children quickly transfer to beginning band instruments when they are ready. Nuvo instruments are 100% waterproof so they can be easily sanitized in hot soapy water.

Nuvo WindStars won the Best in Show at the 2019 NAMM Show

Nuvo WindStars won the Best in Show at the 2019 NAMM Show

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.”
