Has your instrument seen better days? You can’t perform your best unless your instrument is in tip top shape, so let our maintenance and repair team handle it! We’re here to help you focus on what’s most important––playing music!
Our instrument rental program is a terrific option for anyone interested in learning how to play an instrument for the first time. With every instrument in the program 100% rent-to-own, this is a great way to test the musical waters without committing to a serious purchase. Each of your monthly payments will contribute to the cost of the instrument should you choose to stick with it––and we hope you do!
Group music lessons are a great way for friends and families to learn a new instrument like the guitar or ukulele. By design, the students in these lessons learn as much from each other as they do from the instructor, so group lessons are ideal for social learners.
Because of its close proximity to DC, Alexandria is a hotbed for music. Everyone from Cass Elliot and John Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas to Jim Morrison of The Doors got their start in town, and you can too with some private lessons taught here in our store! Our incredible teaching staff has a combined decades of experience teaching music theory, technique and songwriting on instruments like the piano, drums, bass, guitar and everything you’d hear played in an orchestra. Ask about our private and group lessons today! Got an important show coming up at The Birchmere? Let Music & Arts be your last stop before you take the stage!
