On April 22, 2023, we will be hosting our FIRST annual Paige’s Music Trumpet Day at Butler University. This year, we are partnering with Yamaha to host Joe Burgstaller as our guest artist! Joe was my teacher at Peabody Conservatory and is now the Professor of Trumpet at Arizona State University! He was a member/arranger with the Canadian Brass for many years and is extremely active as an international soloist/clinician. Joe will be presenting a masterclass and a world-class recital at our event!
We will also have a special Trumpet Repair presentation by our very own Kevin Gillins! Kevin spent many years at Landress Brass in New York City before coming to Paige’s Music. The day will also include a Q&A session with Joe, Dr. Jason Bergman (IU), Conrad Jones (UIndy, ISO), Jay Ellsmore (ISU, Terre Haute Symphony), and Allen Miller (Butler, ISO). As always, you will have an opportunity to try out trumpets and mouthpieces throughout the day! We will even have private appointments available.
This event is being hosted in collaboration with trumpet studios from area universities including Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, Butler University School of Music, Indiana State University School of Music, and University of Indianapolis Department of Music.
