With the Recorder+, Nuvo introduces the first major innovations to the recorder world for many years. Patented silicone key covers allow for ease of covering the tone holes which will reduce bad note production. With this reduction in squeaks, children will be able to make quicker progress on to more complicated music and teachers can capitalise on their maintained levels of enthusiasm.
The larger tone holes produce a more mellow tone for the Recorder+ compared to traditional instruments. The instrument is fully chromatic from middle C (C42) to D66 and follows traditional baroque recorder fingering.
There are three rubber rings on the bell to match the secondary colour of the instrument, these can be used as a reward system to motivate players as they reach learning milestones or simply used to accessorise!
As with all instruments, the Recorder+ is in concert pitch and can be washed in hot soapy water. Supplied with a recorder fingering chart, open hole covers for C, D and thumb pads as well as a neat moulded case.
This latest Nuvo recorder, follows in the footsteps of award winning instruments - and it more than meets the high expectations set.
Have you seen the Nuvo Windstars books?
Windstar aim to offer a simple, effective, and affordable way for junior school kids to experience playing music together. The idea of a Windstar instrument is to give children a feel for what it would be like to play the real thing. The simpler version allows for skills to develop introducing a class or individual to what playing a wind instrument feels like for them.
Progressing through the program, specially put together by music professionals, children are able to play a musical instrument and develop a life-long love for music at an early age.
Windstars have three different levels to work through. You can start with Level 1 and progress through the stages at your own pace.
