MORE ABOUT MUSIC & ARTS
The first Music & Arts store began in a humble Bethesda, Maryland home back in 1952. With over 150 stores, we’re now the nation’s leading provider of instrument sales, rentals and repairs. But while we’ve grown leaps and bounds over the past 65 years, we’ve never lost sight of the many local communities we serve. Our growth and success has everything to do with the unshakable relationships we’ve formed with musicians, parents, educators and students over the decades. We’ve been owned and operated by the same family since the very beginning, and our values dictate each and every decision we make as a company. Come visit us at our Fort Collins location today! Our friendly staff can’t wait to meet you!
