MORE ABOUT MUSIC & ARTS
Owned by the same family since our founding, Music & Arts began in 1952 when we opened our first store out of a Bethesda, Maryland home. WIth over 150 locations nationwide 65 years later, we’ve grown leaps and bounds since then, but some things about our company have never changed. Our values mean the world to us, and we’ve never lost sight of music’s vast importance on a human level. We fully credit our success to the unshakable relationships we’ve formed with students, parents, educators and professional musicians we’ve formed over the past six decades.
