Get to Know Music & Arts, Garland

Welcome to Music & Arts! 

Take a virtual tour of our store!



The Garland store opened in 2012 in the North Garland Crossing Shopping Center. Please come and visit us here at the store, where we can help you with anything from an instrument re-string to a stuck mouthpiece or picking out some sheet music! We love working with all types of musicians, old or new, and we look forward to meeting you!

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, the 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 do band and orchestra repair!

-Keeping your instrument in top shape is very important.  Whether it's re-hairing a violin bow, overhauling a flute, repadding a saxophone, soldering a brass instrument or reconditioning an entire tuba, our professionals can handle any kind of instrument repair or restoration. Our repair technicians are well-trained professionals, who deliver work that is affordable, timely, and unconditionally guaranteed.

-We recommend having your instrument checked out every 3-4 months, even if it seems like nothing is wrong.  Our preventative maintenance mentality will help keep your instrument in your hands and not in the shop.  Next time you're in, ask us about our maintenance plan!
