Music & Arts Appoints New President
Steve Zapf Brings Both Lifetime of Music Industry Experience and Woodwind Brasswind Family to Music & Arts

FREDERICK, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Music & Arts, the largest band and orchestra instrument retailer and lesson provider in the country, has appointed Steve Zapf as president. A seasoned professional in the musical instrument and education industry, Zapf will report to current president Kenny O'Brien, who will become CEO.

"We're thrilled to welcome Steve to our executive team, as he brings with him valuable insight, experience and a proven winning track record in e-commerce and multi-channel," said Kenny O'Brien, president of Music & Arts. "The addition of his strategic leadership and knowledge of the music industry will position us for rapid expansion and help us achieve aggressive growth."

Simultaneous to Zapf's appointment, the Woodwind Brasswind Company will join the Music & Arts family to better align and supplement the Music & Arts online business. Steve Zapf will oversee Music & Arts' online business, all sales functions, marketing and merchandising.

Zapf most recently served as the executive vice president of multi-channel management for Guitar Center and also led sales and marketing for the direct-to-consumer divisions of GuitarCenter direct, Music and Arts direct, Musician's Friend, Music123, and Woodwind Brasswind. Prior to that, he was the founder & president of Music 123, a leading direct-to-consumer musical instrument retailer that exceeded $50 million in sales before being sold to Guitar Center.

Zapf has been a valuable employee with Guitar Center and Musician's Friend for more than 10 years and is uniquely positioned to lead Music & Arts to becoming a world class multi-channel musical instrument retailer. Prior to joining the Guitar Center family, Zapf attended Wharton Business School and successfully launched where he reinvented the web business and platform. A long history in the industry, Zapf grew up in his family's instrument rental business and negotiated the sale of Zapf's Music to Music & Arts in 2000.
