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.

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