Music & Arts opened its newest musical instrument store and lessons facility in Shawnee, Kan. According to the company, as part of its 65th anniversary celebration, new store openings across the United States will continue throughout 2017.
The new store serves the residents of Shawnee and surrounding Kansas towns in the Overland Park, Lenexa, Roeland Park, Mission and Merriam areas by offering private and group lessons, instrument rentals, repairs and a wide assortment of instruments and accessories. Located in the Shawnee Station Shopping Center at 15810-A Shawnee Mission Pkwy, the store also serves school music programs throughout the county.
“Since day one, services such as rentals, repairs and lessons have been an important part of our retail experience,” said Music & Arts president Steve Zapf. “Sixty-five years ago, our company founder, Benjamin O’Brien, opened the first Music & Arts in a small house in Bethesda, Md. Today, we are proud to serve communities across the entire U.S. with his same level of dedication to students, parents, and music educators.”
Music & Arts comprises 150 retail stores, more than 120 educational representatives, and more than 350 affiliate locations.
“In each new location we open, Music & Arts becomes a strong member of the community it serves,” said Jeremy Mueller, Music & Arts national sales director. “I attribute this to our fully-trained, friendly staff of musicians, our passion for music education, and our commitment to providing a central source for ‘everything musical’ parents and students need — from instruments, to lessons, to accessories and advice.”
