WEST BEND - White House of Music in West Bend moved from Washington Street to a more central location in the city.

White House of Music President and CEO Chris White said they pulled off the feat in one day.

Its new address is 869A S. Main St.

White said the Russ Darrow Group wanted to expand and is taking over the old location.

The Daily News reported in July a $350,000 expansion of Russ Darrow Group’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership will absorb White House of Music, which was next door.

“It made sense to get to a part of town with lots of families busy doing errands,” White said.

White House of Music is a family-run business with five stores in West Bend, Waukesha, Watertown, Wauwatosa and Germantown. It offers instrument rentals, sheet music, music lessons and instrument repair.

In 2001, White House of Music bought GW Music Inc. in West Bend and changed the name.

White said West Bend has a great music program in the schools and it’s one of the reasons there is a White House of Music in West Bend.

The new location was remodeled and White said it’s modern. The space features a lesson studio and an acoustic guitar room.

“Vibrant colored walls in a customer friendly space,” White said of the space.

White House of Music is open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Fridays and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, call 262-334-4426.
