Jim Kaplan and his longtime partner, Jim Botti, were both band directors in Pittsburgh area schools when they saw the need to provide private lessons after school. Together they opened a small studio, with a small glass case for accessories. That case expanded and within a few years the store was established enough for Jim Botti to retire from school teaching and devote his time to the store. Jim Kaplan joined him a year later and together they established a business that served fellow band directors for miles around!
