The first Tarpley Music store was operated out of a Shamrock, Texas hardware store back in the early 1920s. Eventually, Clara Tarpley would move to Pampa, Texas and establish Tarpley Music Company in 1927. Over nine decades later and we're now Texas and Eastern New Mexico's leading provider of musical instruments, rentals, repairs, commercial audio/visual installation, and music education services. We're still owned by the same family and are always looking for ways to grow our company by staying on the cutting edge of the music industry, but we haven't forgotten the value and importance of music in schools and the impact music has on the many communities we serve. We strongly believe that music is an important part of life and we're excited to be able to share our passion with so many people across the great state of Texas and the region of Eastern New Mexico!
