Our Mission

Music is what we live and breathe here at Music & Arts. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to connect people of every age, interest and background with whatever resources they need to thrive in music. We’re a one-stop shop for students, parents, music educators and musicians, providing name brand instrument and music accessory sales, rentals, repairs and a massive selection of books and sheet music.

Our instrument rental program is a great option if you’re someone wanting to explore music for the first time without committing to a serious purchase. With every instrument in our program 100% rent-to-own, you can rest assured knowing all your monthly payments are contributing to the purchase of your instrument should you choose to stick with it––and we hope you do!
