Written by Brittany Bauman and edited by Robert Sheldon, the WindStars Series is a simple, effective, and affordable way for elementary school kids to experience the joy of playing music together. Through WindStars, children learn to play a musical instrument and develop a life-long love of music at an early age.

An effective learning process to help progress to traditional concert band instruments

The WindStars Methodology is focused on the holistic approach of teaching the "whole child" through the WindStar of music education, which is comprised of the following five elements of music: Rhythm/Tempo, Pitch/Tone, Melody/Harmony, Structure, and Expression. The WindStars Series can be used in a solo or group setting with appropriate tunes for each level. The method introduces and develops fundamental beginning instrumental skills while creating an exciting and engaging experience for all students. WindStars is a book-based program with supplemental materials available online (instructional videos, audio backing tracks, and printable PDFs).

WindsStars 3 encourages increasingly independent playing through ensemble music in a variety of genres. Dynamics and chromatic notes are introduced in this level of the series.

WindStars is a 3-level program which can be easily adapted to fit into existing programs:

Level 1 Sound Before Sight

Written for the general music classroom, level one encourages students to learn by ear as much as possible. This level is available in either standard or iconic notation. Students will use instruments to explore their musical creativity, develop fine and gross motor skills, and proper playing techniques.

  • Designed for ages 5-9
  • Written for Nuvo Dood & Toot Instruments

Level 2 Instrument Essentials

Books are intended to build on the experiences in Level 1 and those learned in general music classes. Level 2 is written for individual and/or class lessons that extend woodwind and brass skills while playing fun tunes in various genres. Level 2 focuses on articulation, time signatures, breathing techniques, and improvisation.

Level 3 Pre-Band Ensemble

Books are intended to build on the experiences in Level 2. Level 3 is written for individual and/or class lessons that extend woodwind and brass skills while playing fun tunes in various genres. Level 3 focuses on small ensemble playing and includes duets, trios, and quartets. Supplemental tunes can be downloaded for free from the WindStars website in PDF format, along with backing tracks.
