The NUVO opens up whole newopportunities for kids to take up the sax at an early age. The jSAX follows traditional saxophone fingering patterns and enables kids to develop embouchure and tuning skills. It has a surprising mellow sound and is a lot of fun to play even for an accomplished amateur sax player. The SAX is pitched in C like all other jNUVO instruments so it can play all WindStars music (see page 30). It has a fully chromatic range from middle C to G in the next octave.
For a child ready to progress from the recorder, this is the perfect next step to ultimately playing the flute. The set includes the NUVO firstnote lip plate which can be used in the early lessons while the student is learning posture, fingering and playing simple tunes. When ready, the firstnote can be replaced by the regular lip plate
DOOD is a brand new concept for single reed music education. A natural next step for a child playing the recorder, the DOOD is a great way to introduce single-reed skills at an early age and is a great addition to any recorder ensemble. The DOOD has recorder-like fingering with a simple yet durable key system that helps small fingers to cover the holes. The instrument is fully chromatic over one octave with extra notes in the second register.
The NUVO Clarinéo is a clarinet in the key of C which is ideal for young starters ages 4 to 12 years. It is much lighter and smaller than a Bb clarinet which means the finger stretches are shorter and the tone holes smaller; great for small fingers! When the student is ready, the transition to Bb clarinet is quick and easy. The Clarinéo has a rich, mellow tone and
can play from any score in the key of C such as recorder, piano, flute and voice music.
The NUVO jFlute has a smooth and resonant tone. It is lightweight, durable and features an easy-blowing lip plate…
the perfect choice for a child’s first flute. Suitable for ages 4 to 10 years. The jFlute also features a curved head joint, left hand key extensions and is upgradable to a straight head flute when
the student is ready. See jFlute upgrade kit. The jFlute kit includes the firstnote lip plate, a recorder-like fipple to encourage students in the first few lessons.
