New Ligatures Now in Stock at Paige’s Music

We are thrilled to announce that we are expanding our inventory of ligatures! For those who might not be familiar, a ligature is a small but crucial piece of equipment for woodwind players. It secures the reed to the mouthpiece, directly influencing the sound and playability of the instrument. Here at Paige’s Music, we understand the importance of having the right ligature to match your playing style and needs. That’s why we’re excited to introduce three new ligatures to our collection:

GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT: “Beethoven x Beyoncé” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra

Flute Bag vs. Flute Case – Which One is Right for You?

One of the perks of being a flute player is that you get the option to choose from several cool-looking bags and cases specifically made for your instrument. When you have all these options, how do you know what style is the right choice for you? My goal is to help you gain some clarity on this question! Below, I will compare two popular products: Fluterscooter Bags and Protec Slimline Flute Cases. These are two very different styles but are great products to consider when buying accessories for your flute!

Dr. Josh’s End Of Year Check List

 

As the school year comes to an end, we want to make sure you know what to do with your student’s instrument and share some things that Paige’s Music has to offer! Below you will find two checklists. One is if your student is continuing in band next year, and the other is if your student is not going to continue next year. Please remember that your rental agreement with us is rent-to-own. So, if your student is going to be in band next year, you do not want to return the instrument, as you will lose all the payments you have made towards the ownership of the instrument and will have to either restart the agreement in the fall or pay for the summer months to reinstate the contract.

How “Fallout” Broadened My Musical Horizons

Video games and music are two passions that hold a special place in my heart. My bandmates, who became lifelong friends, were also my gaming buddies. We spent countless days playing a robust lineup of Halo, Smash Bros., and Mario Kart—back in its prime. Amidst our competitive bouts, I couldn’t help but savor the soundtracks echoing from the speakers. The iconic Halo Opening Suite is as monumental to me as the first time I experienced Mahler’s Symphony No. 5.

Indy Trumpet Day is Back!

We are so excited to be sponsoring the 3rd Annual Indy Trumpet Day put together by Kent Hickey on Saturday, June 22nd! Over the past 3 years we have seen this event grow into a must attend for area trumpet players of all levels. This year, we will be sponsoring Jason Bergman as one of the guest artists! Dr. Bergman serves on faculty as an Associate Professor of Music in Trumpet at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music and has served on faculty at the University of North Texas, Brigham Young University, and University of Southern Mississippi. He has also served as President of the International Trumpet Guild and performed throughout the United States, South America, Europe, and China. Dr. Bergman is a Yamaha Performing Artist and plays exclusively Yamaha trumpets.

The day will also feature guest artist Dr. Ansyn Banks who is the Professor of Jazz Trumpet at the University of Louisville! You will not want to miss his clinic! Other contributing artists include Indianapolis’ own Allen Miller who is Acting Assistant Principal Trumpet for the Indianapolis Symphony and teaches at Butler University. Allen is one of the premier trumpeters in Indiana and one of the best educators in the Indianapolis region. If you have not learned from Allen, you are missing out! The day will also feature additional area educators and freelance players adding incredible advice and expertise.
