5 Music & Art Franchises We Love

These franchises allow entrepreneurs to offer a creative outlet for children, teens and adults.

After more than a year of quarantine, restrictions and transitions to online learning, both children and adults alike are itching to stretch their creative muscles.  The franchise industry gives passionate entrepreneurs the opportunity to help others tap into their artistic side.

Here are five music and art franchises to check out this year.

DEA Music & Art

Magi Kapllani, founder of DEA Music & Art, is the daughter of two well-known, classically trained musicians. She came to the U.S. to attend the University of Illinois’ piano performance master’s program before moving to New York City and establishing her own music and art school in 2003, DEA Music & Art. DEA Music & Art was designed so that each and every student benefits from tailor-made music and art instructions that are created to meet their specific aspirations. DEA Music & Art students have performed at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. The brand plans to grow from three to 25 locations within the next 5 years.
