Russell Kephart

Russell Kephart enjoyed his years as a band director but found great satisfaction when he opened his own music store and could provide the service he felt band directors were missing. The Iowa-based store expanded over the decades but always remained focused on customer service. Russ served on the NAMM Board of Directors as well as helping form a local band directors’ organization. Even after retirement, Russ could be found helping his children who now carry on the family tradition.
