Greetings from my home to yours, friends. You all have surely heard by now that our state is under a stay-at-home order, meaning that the Indy Flute Shop and Paige’s Music have been closed since Wednesday March 25th. Our voicemails will not be monitored, but I will be monitoring the IFS social media pages and email for any questions or concerns that may come up during this time. As of now, we are planning to re-open in two weeks, but of course, this is an ever-evolving situation, so be sure to continue checking in here and on social media for updates.

Hopefully you or your students have your flute at home with you during this shutdown, so I thought this would be a good time to get “back to basics” with regards to taking care of your instrument. This week, I’m posting a flute care video from the archives, filmed a couple of years ago. In it, you can find tips on daily cleaning and care of your flute. It is important to follow these guidelines after every time you play your instrument to prevent unnecessary wear and tear–especially since we will be unable to perform repairs for the next couple of weeks! As always, if you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment or email

Stay safe, stay well, and stay in!
