Brighton Music Center

Jim Botti always had a passion for music education and in fact taught most of his life.  In 1958, after he met Jim Kaplan, the two opened a teaching studio that would grow into a music store.  In fact, Brighton Music has two locations in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.  While the two Jims sold the business in the 1990s, they both continued to provide lessons in the store well into their 80s!
