Frederick, MD: Music & Arts, one of the nation’s largest musical instrument retailers and lesson providers, announces that it has acquired Tigard Music, a longtime musical instrument rental, repair and retail destination in Tigard, Oregon. Primarily serving the school band and orchestra community in the region, the facility is located at 11579 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard, OR 97223. Tigard Music was founded in 1976 and has provided services for multiple generations of student musicians and the dedicated educators who teach them. Now part of the Music & Arts family, the location will continue to serve the community with premier retail, rental, lessons and repair services. While Music & Arts representative Steven Marshall has been serving the community’s music students and educators for several years (and will continue to do so), this is officially the first brick-and-mortar Music & Arts location in the Portland area. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
As part of Music & Arts, the facility will see an enhanced rental and retail instrument selection, as well as a greatly expanded lessons program. The facility’s repair services will benefit from being part of the Music & Arts industry-leading network of repair shops, which are well regarded for their high level of service and expertise.
Outgoing Tigard Music president Ron Royse remarks, “I am thrilled that Music & Arts is poised to carry on our fantastic legacy and uphold the commitment to this community that is synonymous with Tigard Music. Rest assured, our customers will continue to see the same familiar faces in-store and receive the outstanding service that they’ve come to expect.”
Scott Lang, Music & Arts Director of Advocacy, comments, “Ron Royse and the rest of the team at Tigard Music have built something special, and we look forward to carrying that torch in this community. From our dedicated team of educational representatives servicing local schools to our company president, Music & Arts is singularly focused on music education by helping educators grow their programs. Through our day-to-day operations as well as the initiatives spearheaded by the advocacy organization Be Part of the Music, our mission is to help increase enrollment, keep kids in music, and advocate for the importance of music education in this and every community across the country.”
