We’re here to help you focus on what’s most important––playing music!

It’s no secret that huge music acts like Linda Ronstadt and Calexico are from Tucson.

Founded in 1952, the first Music & Arts store humbly ran out of a Bethesda, Maryland home. Now the nation’s leading provider of private music lessons, instrument sales, rentals and repairs, we’ve grown leaps and bounds over the past 65 years, but we’ve never lost sight of music’s vast importance in the many communities we serve. We’ve been owned and operated by the same family since the very beginning, and our values inform everything we do as a company. Stop by and see us at our North Tucson location today! We can’t wait to meet you!
