More About Music & Arts
Since opening our first store all the way back in 1952, we’ve been owned and operated by the same family. Though we’ve become a big company over the past 65 years––the nation’s largest provider of private music lessons, band and orchestral instrument sales, rentals and repairs––nothing means more to us than seeing individuals in the communities we serve thrive in music. We’ve become the nation’s most trusted music resource because of the countless unshakable relationships we’ve formed with parents, students, music educators and musicians of every background over the past six decades.
