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.

through organic growth and a series of acquisitions and mergers
with other music dealers. In 2005, Music & Arts joined forces with
