Welcome to Music & Arts - East Mesa, AZ

Take a Virtual Tour of our Store!

Music & Arts in East Mesa is the "go to" music store for all your musical needs. You want it, you like it, you need it - we've got it.  Visit us in the Mesa Pavilions Shopping Center on East Hampton Avenue.
 
The first Music & Arts was located in a small house in Bethesda, MD and run by founder Benjamin O’Brien. When Music & Arts opened its doors in 1952, we offered printed music, music lessons, dance lessons, and art supplies. Ben decided shortly after opening his business that he wanted to focus on music to better serve his customers – a decision that remains intact to this day.

Since the 1990s, Music & Arts has expanded nationwide through organic growth and a series of acquisitions and mergers with other music dealers. In 2005, Music & Arts joined forces with American Music, a division of Guitar Center, to become the largest band and orchestra instrument retailer in the United States.

Still run by the O’Brien family, Music & Arts now comprises close to 500 retail and affiliate locations and over 100 educational representatives nationwide. Now based in Frederick, MD, this company of trained musicians offers friendly service and everything musical for students, parents, and educators, including instruments, lessons, music books and accessories, rentals and repairs.

Music & Arts is designed to provide the most comprehensive offerings for student musicians and music educators. Our goal is to create the best possible multichannel experience for our customers. As a result of this, Music & Arts has earned notoriety as:

  • The nation’s largest lesson provider, with over 1.25 Million private lessons taught each year
  • The largest provider of instrument rentals, with more than 200,000 instruments rented annually
  • The largest school music dealer, serving more than 5000 schools nationwide
  • The largest fleet of outbound salespeople, with over 100 educational representatives visiting schools
  • The largest provider of B&O repair services, with more than 75 repair shops in service across the country

Our Vision: To excite people about playing music, teaching music, and supporting musicians and their passion for music

Our Mission: To be the music retailer of choice for student musicians and music educators

We work closely with all band directors in our area. We sponsor many events for top schools like Highland, Desert Ridge, Red Mountain, etc. We also cater to the special needs of any music educator. Our motto is - if you like it, you want it, or you need it... we've either got it or will get it for you.

We carry a full line of name brands like Yamaha, Bach, Buffet, Bundy, Selmer, Jupiter, Getzen, Gemeinhardt, Ventus, Otto Benjamin, Eastman, Dragon, Doetsch, Fender, Epiphone, Hohner, Breedlove, Takamine, and many more.

We are also the recommended by most music educators as the place to rent a quality name brand instrument for school music programs. We rent Flutes, Clarinets, Trumpets, Trombones, Euphoniums, Oboes, Saxes, Violins, Violas, Cellos, and even have access to some of those harder to find instruments. All out instruments are new or like new and your rental payments are applied towards purchase.

We  carry all the recommended band and orchestra method books like Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Orchestra Expressions, Concert Tunes, etc. as well as everything your band director asks you to have for class. Things like music stand, instrument ID tag, care kits, cleaning kits, reeds, valve oil, tuner, etc. We've even saved you time and money by putting together a Starter Pack that contains these kinds of things but is specifically tailored to each individual instrument.
