Here at Music & Arts, we’re avid supporters of the purpose music serves in local communities. We’re proud to be the nation’s most trusted musical resource, and we aim to serve musicians of all ages and backgrounds with an unparalleled one-stop music shopping experience. We offer everything from a wide selection of instruments and music accessories to instrument rentals, repairs and private lessons. For over 65 years, the nation has relied on Music & Arts to help fulfil its musical needs, and we owe our success to the unshakable relationships we’ve formed with students, parents, music educators and musicians of every kind.
One of the oldest stores in the company, the Music & Arts location in Rockville has been an institution in Montgomery County for decades. We’re located on the Rockville Pike in the Federal Plaza Shopping Center, offering private music lessons, rentals, repairs, and a huge selection of band and orchestra instruments, guitars, keyboards, drums, print music, and supplies for students and educators. We’re conveniently sandwiched between Rock Creek and Old Farm Creek, and our customers sometimes like to practice their instrument under the shade of a tree in Parque Final Phoenix, located just to the east of our store.
