New Chops Showroom

It’s been several months since we first announced that our space would be going through a remodel.  We’re happy to announce that the new showroom is now open for business.

 

The new space is about the same size as our old one, just a slightly different shape and better organization.

Chops Is Getting Remodeled!

Just last week we posted on our Facebook page that the retail space for Chops would be closed.  One week in and a lot has been accomplished!

The showroom and the storage area have been flip-flopped.  The showroom is now on the north end of our space with the storage moving south.  New framing has already gone up that will support various new ways of displaying percussion products.

Director and Instructor Job Opportunities

 

It’s that time of year, when director and instructor positions begin to open up around the state.  If you’re looking for a certified teaching position, a percussion director position, or part-time tech work, make sure to check the Paige’s Music  job openings page.

If you’re a director looking for extra help, please make sure to post the opening here so we can help send candidates your way!  It’s easy to do.  Head over to the Paige’s Music home page.  Hover over “JOB LIST” in the top menu and click on “Job Post Request”.  Fill in the form and click submit.  We typically have your opening posted no later than the next business day.

You can also access that form directly by clicking here.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the job list.
