Quattlebaum Music Shop’s New Mural Design is Sure to Please the Town of Searcy

Searcy, Ark., (LP) — Quattlebaum Music Shop has been in Searcy for more than 45 years, selling instruments, pieces and giving lessons to anyone willing to learn. The music shop isn’t affiliated with another company nor do they have any other branch which is what makes them unique. Quattlebaum doesn’t sell anything online because they believe in personal one-on-one service plus they encourage the support of the shop and music education. Many students from the town and Searcy High School go to the Quattlebaum Shop for music lessons and that’s where they grew up learning music from. It’s an environment that welcomes everyone and encourages people to try new instruments. Recently the music shop announced they were painting a mural on the side of their building reflecting the music life.
