About Music & Arts

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:

  • Bachelor's Degree (or 4 years of equivalent work experience)
  • 7 years of experience as a District Manager, Store Manager, and/or Operations Manager
  • 7 years of experience leading and motivating teams
  • Ability to organize, prioritize, plan, implement, and evaluate a number of projects simultaneously while driving sales expectations, Regional metrics, and balancing the people-needs of the business
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office Suite with strong Excel skills.
  • Strong business acumen including data management, attention to detail, and excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • A high level of integrity, personal motivation, adaptability, and sense of urgency
  • Travel 50-60% including long drives of 3-5 hours (company car provided), regular air travel throughout the Region
  • Valid state driver’s license and automotive insurance
