Thank you for an Amazing 60 years of music

Sixty years ago, Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center opened its doors. It was 1958, and Chuck and Marge Levin found themselves in the music business, “a happy business” as Chuck always put it. For 10 years we were a part of the D.C. Community, spreading the love of music and getting instruments into the hands of as many people as possible. The D.C. Riots of 1968 reduced the city, and our store to rubble. We were left with only memories and an unwavering desire to carry on.

With the support of the D.C. Community, and the support of our extended musical family, Chuck Levin's re-opened in Wheaton, MD just outside the city, only five months later. Fifty years have passed since then and our company has grown into a family of over 100 people. Together we have put over a million instruments into hands of musicians all over the globe. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we want to know your stories!

Please share in our 60th Anniversary Celebration and help us kick off the next 60 years!
