Welcome to Music & Arts | Charlottesville

Since opening our first store all the way back in 1952, our company has held firmly on to our values and a mission of connecting musicians of every age, interest and background to the resources they need to thrive in music. Over 65 years and 150 stores later, Music & Arts has grown and changed, but we’ve never lost sight of music’s profound impact on a personal level. We provide a one-stop shopping experience to our guest that offers everything from name brand instrument sales, rentals and repairs to phenomenal private instruction.

Charlottesville, VA, welcome to your friendly local music store! Conveniently located in the 29th Place Shopping Center, you can find our store on the intersection of Seminole Trail and Rio Road. We’re just south of Virginia's gorgeous South Fork Rivanna River Reservoir and to the north of Charlottesville’s downtown area.

In addition to the good people of Charlottesville, our store also happily serves the surrounding areas of Berkmar, Townwood, Oak Forest, Montvue Terrell, Chapel Hills, Wakefield, Rivers End, Lake Hills, Fieldbrook, Bending Branch, Raintree, Dunlora, Key West, Poplar Glen, Franklin, Barracks Road, Willow Heights, Farmington, Barrett Acres and more!

Interested in getting your child enrolled in music lessons but don’t want to commit to a serious purchase? Our rental program is here to the rescue! Renting an instrument from us is a great way to test the musical waters with your child without buying an instrument. And with all of our instruments 100% rent-to-own, you can rest assured that the money you spend every month is going toward an instrument you’ll own for life should your child stick with it.

Music & Arts is elated to be a part of the musical development of so many of our nation’s children. Our Charlottesville location proudly serves the following local schools:
