Ego Music has been enriching the Virginia Beach community for years with music instruction and instrument rentals. Music & Arts is honored to carry on their legacy with private and group music lessons, instrument sales, rentals, repairs, and much more! We’re located in the Red Mill Commons shopping area just north of Upton Drive and Elson Green Avenue. Our store is just a short walk away from the Red Mill Farms Park and the Nimmo Trail.
