The year was 1968. Hal Rindlisbacher, a popular local band director, founded Riverton Music when he converted an old chicken coop into a band instrument repair shop. At first, Hal kept busy repairing instruments for students and friends, but soon customers were coming from all over the valley to visit the man who was known for his excellent workmanship and honesty. When customers began asking for his advice on purchasing instruments and supplies, the retail side of Riverton Music was born.
In 1978, a 2400 square foot building was constructed to house the growing retail business. Hal continued his successful band program at Kearns High School during the day and opened for business after school and on weekends.
In 1980 Hal decided to take a year sabbatical from teaching and devoted himself full time to his growing company. Much to his student’s dismay, the music store began to take his full attention and time.
In February 2002, after 33 years, the original location in Riverton was closed and replaced by the new Sandy store located at 9400 South and I-15. The new Sandy store has helped Riverton Music become one of the top 100 music retailers in the country.
Riverton Music has recital hall facilities located in West Valley store and Sandy store.
The recital hall is booked in two (2) hour time blocks and the charge for that time is $50.00 in Sandy and $35.00 in West Valley.
Sandy has seating for 120 people. There are two grand pianos on the stage and can provide access to a sound system with one mic should you need.
Please contact the stores directly for availability and to schedule a recital.
