Getting Started


Getting started - instruments and kids

How it works

WindStars is a flexible program for elementary schools with books and free online supporting materials such as backing tracks, instructional videos and print files. It is a 3-stage program which can be easily adapted to fit into existing programs. Since WindStars instruments are all in concert pitch (C), the program can easily accommodate and blend with other classroom instruments like Boomwhackers, recorders, ukuleles and xylophones. You will also find it easy to accompany with the piano or guitar.

How to start

The easiest way to start WindStars is by forming a class at Level 1. Here are a few simple steps to start your own WindStars music program:
