      Welcome to Music & Arts | The Forum TX

      Since 1952, we’ve made it our mission here at Music & Arts to connect people of all ages, interests and backgrounds with whatever resources they need to thrive in music. We’re strong believers in the profound good music can do in a person’s life, and are proud to be the nation’s most steadfast music resource. We’re a comprehensive music shopping experience for our customers, providing excellent private and group music lessons, name brand instrument and music accessory sales, rentals, repairs, and a wide assortment of helpful books and sheet music. Whether you’re a seasoned career musician or are finally getting around to learning how to play an instrument for the first time, we’re here to serve you!

      Welcome to your friendly local music store! In addition to the wonderful San Antonio community, we also serve the surrounding areas of Converse, New Braunfels, McQueeney, Seguin, New Berlin, St Hedwig, Adkins, La Vernia, Elmendorf, Saspamco, Losoya, Alamo Heights, Leon Valley, Timberwood Park, Spring Branch, Canyon Lake and more!

      We’re conveniently located off of I-35 and the East Charles William Anderson Loop in The Forum at Olympia Parkway. You can find us just north of the Live Oak’s Main City Park, and if the weather’s nice, we invite you to practice your instrument there under the shade of a tree after shopping with us!

      Are you a local music teacher? Music & Arts has a deep appreciation for our nation’s music educators, and we can’t thank you enough for all you do. We know how difficult your job can be, so we’re here to make your life a little bit easier. Come in and save 30% on our selection of books and sheet music! Thank you for enriching the lives of our local students through music!

      Our instrument rental program is a great option for anyone interested in learning how to play an instrument for the first time. Everything in our program is 100% rent-to-own, so you can rest assured your monthly payments are going toward the purchase of your instrument should you choose to stick with it––and we hope you do! This is a great option if you’re interested in testing the musical waters without committing to a serious purchase.

      Need your guitar or bass restrung before your next show? Taking the time to restring an instrument before an important show can be a huge hassle, so why not let our repair and maintenance team handle it? The last thing you should be focusing on before a performance is instrument maintenance, so drop off your axe with us and we’ll have it cleaned and restrung in no time. We’re here to help you focus on what’s important––music!

      Whether you’re gearing up to play the Blue Bonnet Palace with your country band, or some of Austin’s incredible venues with your rap project, let Music & Arts be your last stop before you take the stage! With everything from helpful books and sheet music to music accessories like guitar strings, reeds and drumsticks, we’re here to help you perform your best.

      Want to learn how to make amazing alternative country music like Steve Earle? Well, the legendary songwriter got his start in town and you can too with some music lessons taught here in our store! Our team of private and group instructors have a combined decades of experience, teaching technique, theory and songwriting on instruments like guitar, bass, keys, drums and anything you’d hear in an orchestra. With experience teaching kids as well as adults, our lessons are perfect whether you’re looking for great instruction for your kids, or help with an instrument you’ve been playing for decades.
