Get to Know Music & Arts, Milford

Welcome to Music & Arts Milford, MA!

Formerly known as The Music Nook, Music & Arts in Milford sells instruments such as guitars, keyboard,s and drum sets. We offer instrument rentals as well as purchases. Lessons are available for most instruments including, but not limited to: the flute, saxophone, drums, violin/viola, piano, guitar, and voice. Serving music students and teachers in Worcester County. Servicing area schools  such as Milford Public Schools, Franklin, Hopedale, Mendon/Upton, Auburn, Medfield, Foxborough, Douglas, Webster, Northbridge, Marlborough, Ashland, North Attelboro, and Norton. 

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:
