WindStars is a new innovative book-based program where the methodology is focused on teaching the ‘whole child’. The WindStars musical education is comprised of the following elements: rhythm, tone, melody, harmony, structure and expression.
WindStars 1 Sound Before Sight teachers’ book has been designed to encourage the students to learn by ear; standard simple notation is also introduced. The WindStars 1 programme encourages students to use their instruments and explore their own musical creativity, help develop fine and gross motor skills along with proper playing techniques.
The teachers’ book does include references to the student book along with references to various material (printable files, backing tracks and videos) which can be downloaded from the WindStars website: www.nuvo-WindStars.com
