More About Music & Arts
It’s hard to believe that our remarkable story of growth began with one humble store back in 1952. Since the very beginning, we’ve been owned and operated by the same family, and our success has everything to do with the close relationships we’ve formed with local schools, music educators and musicians across the country. We’re avid believers in the power of music, and we’re elated to serve local communities with whatever they need in music. We’re now the nation’s leading provider of music lessons, band and orchestral instrument sales and rentals, but nothing means more to us than seeing the communities we serve thrive in music. Come visit our Germantown location today! Our phenomenal staff will be happy to see you!
