Meet Indy Flute Shop

Does the thought of shopping for a better flute for your student make your head spin? If you have ever looked in a music store or online, you may have noticed that there are so many different brands, models, and options available for flute players who are looking to take their playing and instrument to the next level. Thankfully, Paige’s Music has its very own flute shop, equipped with a specialist who is well-versed in all things flute.

Experienced Staff

With an experienced flute player on staff, you can trust that your questions will be answered by someone who’s been there. All of their flutes are play tested before being sold and adjustments are made if necessary. So you can be sure that the flute you buy will play just as well as it did in the workshop. Also, they are backed by Indiana’s premier repair facility, the Paige’s Music repair shop. This allows them to offer the highest level of repair and maintenance for your flute or piccolo.

Come Visit Us
