Teach music here in Paramus? Music & Arts has a deep appreciation for our nation’s music educators, and we can’t thank you enough for all you do. Come in during our monthly Teacher Appreciation Day and save 30% on books and sheet music. Thanks for enriching the lives of our nation’s kids through music!

Want to get your child involved with music but not sure they’ll stick with it? Our instrument rental program is a great option to test the musical waters with your child without having to commit to a serious purchase. And with every instrument in our program 100% rent-to-own, you can rest assured knowing each of your monthly payments are contributing towards the purchase of the instrument if your child chooses to stick with it––and we hope they do!

Everyone knows how much of a drag restringing a guitar or bass can be before an important show, so why not let our maintenance and repair team handle it for you? Drop your instrument off with us and we’ll have it cleaned and restrung in no time so you can get back to what’s most important––playing music!

Our group lessons are a great way for families and friends to bond and tackle a challenge at the same time. Learning how to play instruments like the guitar, bass or ukulele in group lessons is terrific for social learners because they learn from other students as well as the teacher. Ask about our group lessons today!

Got a big show coming up at the Ciccone Theatre? Whether you play bass in a punk band or the flute in an orchestra, let the Music & Arts here in Paramus be your last stop before you take the stage. With everything from reeds, music stands and guitar picks to a huge assortment of books and sheet music, we’re here to help you perform your best. Break a leg!

Did you know that the band The Escape Engine is from Paramus? The critically acclaimed hardcore outfit got their start here in town and you can too with some private lessons taught in our store! Our incredible teaching team has a combined decades of experience teaching kids and adults theory, songwriting and technique for instruments like guitar, bass, piano, drums and orchestral instruments.

More About Music & Arts

Our incredible story of growth has everything to do with our commitments to our values and the many local communities we serve.

We’re now the nation's leading provider of private music lessons, band and orchestra instrument sales, rentals and repairs, but we’ve never lost sight of music’s profound impact on a personal level. Come visit our Paramus location today! Our friendly staff can’t wait to meet you!
