Scales Music sells to Music and Arts

Greetings to all of our customers and students,

On Monday, March 12th, Scales Music will be sold to Music and Arts.  Music and Arts is the leading school band and orchestra speciality music store in the nation and has been partnered with Scales Music since April 2011 as our affiliate rental instrument supplier. 

Attention to our school band and orchestra Rental Customers, all rental operations will continue uninterrupted.  If you have any rental questions or need assistance you can contact the Rental Customer Service line at 1-888-731-5396 or contact us locally at 636-244-3770 or you can continue to use if you prefer to email.  We will continue operating in the same location at 412 Jungermann Rd, STE 201, St. Peters, MO.

We have really enjoyed our partnership with Music and Arts and we are very excited to take this next step in order to provide the wide variety of products and services that Music and Arts will bring to the St. Louis area.  We are also thrilled to announce that the owner of Scales Music, Sean Scales, is now the newest Educational Representative for Music and Arts and will be serving local school music programs throughout St. Louis.  Sean brings 10 years of experience in this position and is looking forward to getting back into the schools supporting music education in our schools and in the community.

All lessons will continue uninterrupted.  We are very happy to announce that Music and Arts will retain all of our current private music instructors.  Music and Arts is a leader in providing quality lessons with experienced instructors and we will be actively looking to grow our lesson program in St. Peters.

Music & Arts has served students, teachers, and families through retail stores and school representatives since 1952. Based in Frederick, MD, the company specializes in instrument rentals, music lessons and band and orchestra instrument sales.  Music & Arts now has over 100 retail locations in 20 states.

From the time our doors opened just last May of 2011, we have been committed to making instrumental music more accessible and affordable to all students from 1 to 100.  The decision to sell our company to Music and Arts is the next step in that commitment.  We are expanding the product selection we have to offer both in the store and via online orders, providing a full time Educational Representative to work with local music educators, expanding our lesson facility and there's much more to come! 

On a personal note, we'd would like to thank so many people that helped us during this journey.  We appreciate every single customer that made the choice to do business with us.  It's been so great seeing students, both young and not so young, enjoy their time taking lessons with our great teachers and improving on their instrument week after week.  To the parents and the students, thank you.  It has been a pleasure getting to know you and we appreciate that you chose to take your lessons at Scales Music.  We are looking forward to your continued improvement and performance opportunities as you continue with Music and Arts.  We'd also like to thank all of our friends who offered their support, advice, and at times physical labor to assist us. 

The best part is that this isn't goodbye!  All of our customers and students were essential in making this move possible and bringing a wonderful company like Music and Arts to the St. Louis area.  So thank you, tell your friends about us, and we look forward to seeing you in our store again very soon!
