Who We Are


We are a passionate team of Music Educators who believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in music at an early age.  The WindStars Program provides the framework and resources for a new wave of pre-band instrumental music classes which we hope will excite you as a teacher as well as inspire kids to embrace music throughout their education and beyond.  



Brittany Bauman is the Music Education Director and Office Manager of the US office for Nuvo Instrumental in Beverly, Massachusetts. She is the team lead and  project coordinator of the WindStars curriculum focused on helping music educators integrate Nuvo instruments into their classrooms. She also oversees Nuvo’s US distribution center and personally handles the maintenance and repair of instruments. Previously, Brittany taught elementary general music and chorus in the public school system in Massachusetts for seven years.

Brittany is actively involved in sharing the WindStars methodology with other educators around the country. Brittany is available for WindStars Teacher Trainings for any group of teachers interested in exploring this new standards-based curriculum. She has presented clinics about Nuvo instruments and the WindStars curriculum at many state music education shows including TMEA, FMEA, PMEA, NHMEA and MMEA in addition to future scheduled events.

In collaboration with other educators, Brittany is working to implement a number of outreach initiatives at schools and community centers on a local and national level with the goal to provide new musical opportunities for students with limited access to instruments and/or teachers. The vision behind the Nuvo instruments and creation of WindStars curriculum was to involve more children in music at a younger age and foster a love of music throughout their entire lives. Brittany is constantly searching for passionate and dedicated teachers to partner with to bring this vision to life.

Brittany completed her M.M. in Music Education with an emphasis on General and Instrumental Music. She graduated summa cum laude from Gordon College with a B.M. in Music Education and teaching certification for grades preK-12. She has completed training and has teaching experience in Conversational Solfege, Orff Schulwerk, Music Learning Theory and Music Together.
