About Music & Arts

Music & Arts 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.

To join our band, you'll need the following experience:
  • High School Diploma or equivalent
  • Proficiency with MS Office (Outlook, Excel, Word)
  • Valid state driver's license and automotive insurance
  • Must be able to lift and/or move up to 50 pounds.
  • Must be able to work a flexible schedule including evenings.
  • Must be able to read, write, speak, and comprehend English.

Preferences:

  • Bilingual; the ability to understand and to make oneself understood to all Spanish speaking individuals
