Ruby Beeston was a piano teacher when she suggested that a local piano store carry sheet music. The store offered her space to sell the materials, which led to her opening a small chain of retail shops in the Salt Lake City, UT area. In searching for a store name she and her husband thought about using their own name, Beeston Music, but soon realized there would be spelling and pronunciation problems, so they changed it slightly to Best In Music. Ruby sang in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for 20 years, taking part in their historic weekly radio broadcasts, recordings and special events.
