Music & Arts Purchases Scales Music, Enters St. Louis Market
On Monday, March 12th, Music & Arts acquired Scales Music in St. Peters, MO. Scales Music opened in May of 2011 and has been partnered with Music & Arts as a rental affiliate. This new Music & Arts retail store will be the first location in the St. Louis market. Sean Scales, former owner of Scales Music, will serve as a Music & Arts Educational Representative for school music programs in the St. Louis area. Sean has 10 years of experience working as an ed rep with the school music community in the local area.
"We have really enjoyed our partnership with Music & Arts and we are very excited to take this next step in order to provide the wide variety of products and services that Music & Arts will bring to the St. Louis area," says Scales.
As a former affiliate, Music & Arts will continue all of the location’s rental operations uninterrupted. In addition, Music & Arts will retain all of the current private music instructors and their students with a goal to actively grow the lesson program in St. Peters. The transition will include many great benefits for the customers, including an expanded product selection in the store and online, a full time ed rep to work with local music educators, and expanding the lesson facility.
"From the time our doors opened just last May, we have been committed to making instrumental music more accessible and affordable to all students from 1 to 100," says Scales. "The decision to sell this company to Music & Arts is the next step in that commitment."
