embodies the world of creativity and music by encouraging our
teammates to find their own individual sound. We strive to create
lifelong musicians and make a difference in the world by enabling
musicians and non-musicians alike to experience the almost
indescribable happiness that comes from playing an instrument. We
believe in putting our customers first, engaging with respect and
integrity and fulfilling our mission with passion. The first Music
& Arts was located in a small house in Bethesda, MD and run by
founder Benjamin O'Brien. When Music & Arts opened its doors in
1952, we offered printed music, music lessons, dance lessons, and
art supplies. Ben decided shortly after opening his business that
he wanted to focus on music to better serve his customers -- a
decision that remains intact to this day. Since the 1990's, Music &
Arts has expanded nationwide through organic growth and a series of
acquisitions and mergers with other music dealers. In 2005, Music &
Arts joined forces with American Music to become the largest band
and orchestra instrument retailer in the United States. Based in
Frederick, MD, Music & Arts is now part of the Guitar Center
enterprise and comprises 225+ retail stores, 200+ educational
representatives, and 250+ affiliate locations.
