Welcome to Music & Arts | Ridgewood

185 E. Ridgewood Ave 

Hello friends of Ridgewood, NJ! We are the Ridgewood Music & Arts team, and we are so excited to be here! Formerly the store on Route 17 in Paramus (Also formerly Victor’s), we have moved  closer to the community we serve! 


About Music & Arts:


Our incredible story of growth has everything to do with our commitments to our values and the many local communities we serve. Since opening our first store in 1952 over 65 years ago, we’ve been owned and operated by the same family, and our company doesn’t make any decisions without our values in mind.


Our Mission:


It is our job at Music & Arts to help you succeed and reach your music goals. Whether you’re just starting out in elementary school learning how to open the case rightside up, or a seasoned pro looking for a new instrument, we are here to help! Our team here at Music & Arts Ridgewood is a friendly resource to help you get your music career going in the right direction.


Music & Arts as a company has been working with nearby Ridgewood school districts for many years, and that tradition continues with our Rental Program. It is 100% Rent-To-Buy, so when you know your child is committed to playing their instrument, we have special purchase options for our rental customers! At the store, we have all of your teacher’s preferences, so we know what specific instrument brand, book, and supplies you need to have a successful and musical school year!


Are you a parent of a student who is just starting out, and see they love playing their instrument? Are you a student who likes to play your instrument, and wants to improve your technique? Or maybe are you somebody who always wanted to play an instrument, but didn’t have time until now? If you answered yes to any of those questions, our Lesson Studio is for you! Since December 2019, we have hired some phenomenal educators lined up to give you or your child an unforgettable lesson experience! Music & Arts is the #1 Lesson Provider in the country, so join the 2.5 million students we teach a year and stop in for a tour of the Lesson Studios, and sign up today!


At Ridgewood Music & Arts, we are thrilled to serve the communities surrounding Ridgewood as well! If you are looking for something specific, but do not live in town, give us a call and we will see if we have it in stock for you! If we do, we can set it aside for you and would be happy to have you in the store to get everything else you need! Don’t see what you’re looking for in the store or on our website? Don’t fret! Ask one of our friendly associates and we will do the best we can to get what you need as soon as possible.


We are very fortunate to be a part of such an arts-friendly community, and we are excited to help continue that culture. To our friends who continue to come back and visit us, and to our new friends who will be coming to visit us in the near future, we look forward to seeing you soon!
