Summer Is Ending – Make Sure Your Instrument Is Ready

We recommend that you send your instrument in for a check-up at least 2 times a year to keep it in proper playing condition. And what better time to do that then during summer break while you may have some down time. And if you need a loaner to use while we have your instrument, we have you covered.*

Bring your instrument by our store M-F 10-6 and Sat. 10-4, or give us a call to see if we have visits scheduled for your school over the summer. Have questions? Call us at 1.317.577.3415 or drop us an email at repair@paigesmusic.com.

Enjoy your time off and don’t forget to practice!

*Loaner instruments guaranteed for all active rentals and service policies only. Loaners for general repair customers dependent upon our loaner instrument inventory.

Thursday, July 23rd through Saturday, July 25th

If you have been a customer of ours for a while, you are probably familiar with our two annual sales in March and November. Since we had to close our doors in March, and we didn’t want you to miss out on these “super” savings, we have decided to host a Super Sale event in July!

Here’s how you can save:

Visit our store Thursday, July 23rd through Saturday, July 25th and draw a ticket worth 5%-50% off! This ticket is applicable to any outright purchase of an upgrade instrument. If you’d prefer to rent, we’ve got you covered there too. Each coupon also has an offer for up to four months off our rent-to-own program.

We hope you’ll join us as we’ve greatly missed seeing and making music with you! We have made adjustments at our store to keep both our customers and employees safe. All instrument testing is done by appointment only. Please visit www.paigesmusic.com/schedule and reserve your time for the Summer Super Sale!

 

A few more details:
*Drawing is limited to one ticket per family per day. Sales staff must witness drawing. Does not apply to any previous purchases, current rentals, pay-offs, repairs, or special orders. In-person sales only. Valid from July 23-25, 2020.

Online Summer Music Workshops

A lot of on-site summer music camps have been cancelled, but there are still plenty of options available to study online.  Here are just a few I found for low brass players.

What To Practice Over The Summer

At a time when marching band or other summer music camps are typically ramping up into full gear, I know there are many students who are sitting at home wondering what should they be doing? Well, if the latest video game or hit show has either lost its appeal or you’ve completed them it could be time to dust off your good ol’ instrument and make a plan for the summer to stay in shape in the event any of these typical summer activities should return.

How to Ease back into Playing After Summer Break

I speak from experience when I say that playing after a long break is tough! If you haven’t picked your instrument up in a few weeks, it can be really difficult to play! Everything feels alien—your chops swell up, you get exhausted after a few notes, you lose your range, and etc. I get it, I get it—hanging out at the pool with your friends is more fun than playing concert F for 30 minutes a day. Here are a few tips to ease you back into playing after summer break:
