About Tarpley Music Waco

Opened in 2016, by David & John Tarpley, we’re proud to have been serving the music & arts of the fantastic community of Waco for almost 3 years, bringing over 91 years of experience to Central Texas. This location is a full-line music store complete with a Digital Piano Gallery, Pro Band Shop, Pro Orchestra Shop, a full-service brass & woodwind repair shop, a Acoustic Barn, and soon a Texas Guitar Showcase.

We’re conveniently located on Lake Air Dr in the Pinnacle Shopping Center, between N Valley Mills Dr and Bosque St. You can find us behind HEB on Wooded Acres Dr. We're in the same location as a previous Waco music store, Backstage Pass Music Center.

This location has a piano gallery, stocking the newest technology in digital pianos, portable keyboards and music production keyboards by Yamaha, Roland, Korg, Nord and more. Acoustic Grands, Uprights, Disklavier (Player Piano), TransAcoustic and Silent Pianos by Yamaha.

We value the importance of music in schools and student's lives, which is why we have our professionally trained Education Reps visit Waco and surrounding area schools daily. (Baylor too!)

We have the most complete band repair facility in Waco, which provides service and support for surrounding schools (including colleges) and our customers. Service Plans are available.

Our experienced combo staff is more than capable of repairing guitars, both acoustic and electric. We can do anything form re-strings to complete setups.

Look for us behind the HEB, off of North Valley Mills Dr, in the Pinnacle Shopping Center.
