Scott Hayden – Brass Technician

Scott Hayden

A sad but happy time for us in the shop this week.

Scott Hayden, our lead brass technician, is retiring after 39 years of service here at Paige’s Music.

When Scott joined me here in 1977 it was just the two of us doing all the repairs. Four shop remodeling’s and two moves later we now have a staff of 23 in the shop. Through all of the changes Scott has been instrumental in development, training, organizing and maintaining the level of repair we believe in, as well as one of the finest brass technicians I know.

We wish him well in this new chapter of his life as he and his wife, Mary Lou, get to enjoy their grandkids and traveling at their leisure.

You can learn more about Scott from his Staff Spotlight that we recorded back in February of this year (2016).

As one of the premier manufacturers of wind instruments, there is a great deal of knowledge and craftsmanship behind the music of the Buffet Group. With all of this expertise, the Buffet Group created the free, fun app: Urban Play.

Urban Play gives the user the opportunity to play along with some of the top musicians including Camille Chapelliere (Clarinet), Regis Moreau (Flute), Al Naniscalco (Saxophone), Fabien Cyprien (Trombone), Michael Rambaud (Trumpet), and many more world class musicians!

All of the playable tracks come in different difficulties and you can start at any point in the track and utilize either just the accompaniment and/or the soloist music track. Another great feature of the app it includes the opportunity for improvisation over a background groove.

Every instrument track is performed by a professional musician so you can not only play along, but have a guide for the musicality and tone to strive for!

Urban Groove is available for iPad and iPhone (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/urban-play/id886668420?mt=8) and Android 4.1 or higher (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.buffet_group.UrbanPlay).
