Take a virtual tour of our store!

Since opening our first store in a Bethesda, Maryland home back in 1952, we’ve been on a mission to connect the world to the joy of music.

We’re America’s most trusted music shop, offering everything from phenomenal music lessons to name brand instrument sales, rentals and a massive selection of books and sheet music. No matter where you find yourself in the world of music, we’re here to help you thrive.
