Music & Arts opened a new location in Toms River, N.J., intended to greatly expand its lesson space and service capabilities to better serve the residents of Toms River and surrounding towns in the Manchester Township, Seaside Park, and Seaside Heights areas.
Located in Toms River Shopping Center at 1 Route 37 W. #9, the store also serves school music programs throughout the Ocean County area.
“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.”
School Services District Manager, Brian Yatauro noted, “We are excited to continue to offer the best in music education, resources, rentals, lessons and repairs to the Ocean County community.”
Music & Arts comprises more than 150 retail stores, more than 120 educational representatives, and over 350 affiliate locations. In addition to carrying a wide assortment of top-name brands, most locations offer expert repairs and university-trained, background-checked lesson instructors.
