. The instructional videos are also available on the WindStars YouTube channel. The WindStars curriculum has been completely designed with teachers in mind, even if the teacher is not a woodwind or brass specialist – the teacher book and website will tell you everything you need to know!
This flexible general music teaching method can be adapted to work alongside any existing music program, or as a standalone complete package. The methodology takes a standards-based, whole child approach with a focus on engaging and joyful musical experiences coupled with transferable instrumental skills which will be useful in later musical life.
WindStars1 is suitable for Dood and Toot, aimed at students from 5-9 years old. No prior musical experience is required.
The first instalment is entitled Sound Before Sight
and encourages students to learn by ear, developing aural skills. Iconic notation is used to give a gentle introduction to musical notation. The student will use instruments to explore their own musical creativity, developing both fine and gross motor skills along with musical instrument playing techniques and embouchures.
