About Me


Hey there!

     My name is Stephen Byrd and I’ve been with Music and Arts for several years now. I currently manage the Laurel store in Howard County where we’ve served to bring music to the community for over twenty years. Our store is passionately dedicated to keeping music alive in our society through providing lessons, rentals, repairs, and everything else you’ll need to be successful in your musical journey!

     Lessons are what build the foundation and basis for musicians as they strive to excel in their instrument and, here at Music and Arts, they are held in the utmost importance. We are honored to be able to offer solid, structured, and creative instruction to our lesson students. Because the relationship between a teacher and a student is imperative, we believe that having the perfect instructor for your student is critical. For this reason, we pride ourselves in having the most devoted, passionate, and best qualified teachers in the area to teach your growing musician. Our brilliant instructors are able to work with any level of performance whether the student has just started playing or if they have been playing for many years. A list of our teachers can be found on our store’s home page for your review but, if you’d like, please give us a call and ask us about more information on our wonderful instructors!

     The Music and Arts store in Laurel is also the most convenient place to rent your instrument while learning to play. We offer name brand, teacher approved rentals for all instruments including Yamaha, Jupiter, Bach, Gemeinhardt, Bundy, Strobel, Glaesel, Selmer, Buffet, and many more! We can rent you a brand new instrument for the same price as a used one and offer a flexible and affordable damage coverage plan to cover the cost of repairs while you rent. Our rental plan is completely 100% rent to own which means all of the money you are putting towards your instrument as you rent is going towards the purchase of the instrument. You also have countless exchange options while renting with us with no additional fees or costs.
