Music & Arts humbly began in a Bethesda, Maryland home in 1952. Now the nation’s leading provider of instrument sales, rentals, repairs and music lessons, we’ve grown leaps and bounds over the past 65 years, but we’ve never forgotten our roots. We’ve been owned and operated by the same family since the very beginning, and have never lost focus on music’s impact on a personal level. Drop by and see us at our Newton location today!
