Meet Tucker Woerner – Low Brass Specialist at Paige’s Music

My name is Tucker Woerner, and I am the new Low Brass Specialist at Paige’s Music. I have worked at Paige’s for about a year and a half, but I was a Paige’s customer since I started playing the trombone at Eastwood MS in 6th grade. While attending North Central HS I was encouraged by my orchestra director, Craig Ghormley, to consider pursuing music as a career. Along with his help and the guidance of my private teacher, Carl Hungerford, I successfully entered the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Side-by-Side program.

While in the Side-by-Side program I met Jared Rodin, and I went on to study with him at Butler University. After completing my BA in Music in 2015 I went to the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University and completed my MM in Trombone Performance with an outside area in Historical Performance. My primary teachers have been M. Dee Stewart, Jared Rodin, Linda Pearse, and Carl Hungerford.

In addition to working at Paige’s Music I teach private music lessons and play my horns as much as my schedule permits. I’m always interested to hear what music you enjoy and why. As the old adage goes, “there are only two kinds of music: good and bad.” Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions regarding instruments, mouthpieces, accessories, or any other questions related to your instrument and the music you seek to make. I am always excited to hear what new things you might like to see us carry and what concerts and events are going on in our community.

Meet Ross Werner – Trumpet Specialist at Paige’s Music

Hello, everyone! My name is Ross Werner, and I am the Trumpet Specialist here at Paige’s Music.

My relationship with Paige’s began like most students in Indiana when I followed my parents into the Greenwood High School Band room to get fitted for an instrument during my 5thgrade year. I distinctly remember really wanting to be a percussionist, but Mr. Kalugyer was not hesitant in telling me that I should stick to trying out the trumpet. Turns out, I guess he made a pretty good choice for me!

After my time at Greenwood High School, I went on to pursue and complete a degree in Arts Administration with a Music focus and Marketing Minor at Butler University from 2014-2018. During that time, I was fortunate enough to spend 4 years touring the country through Drum Corps International. In 2014, I played trumpet in the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps based out of Rockford, Illinois. I then spent the next three summers from 2015-2017 as a drum major for Carolina Crown Drum Corps from Fort Mill, South Carolina.  My time at Butler also presented me with outstanding musical experiences, including four years as part of the University Wind Ensemble under the direction of Col. Michael Colburn and in the trumpet studio led by Allen Miller.

In addition to my work at Paige’s, I am also a freelance graphic designer doing work mostly for band programs across the country in order to provide digitally-printed props and floors, social media graphics, multimedia productions, apparel designs, and more! During the Summer/Fall months, I am also an instructor for the marching band at Avon High School.

I am super excited to get things rolling for my position here at Paige’s! Some of these things include getting to work with students and schools throughout the year, helping students and adults find their “forever” instruments, developing relationships in and around the community, and continuously learning about all things trumpet/music.

Anyone is more than welcome to visit our store and try out any/all of the trumpets we have here in the store. It is my goal to not only provide quality information, but a quality experience for anyone who is looking to invest in an instrument, from beginners to professionals.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me and I would be happy to help any way possible!
