<p>Chuck Levin&rsquo;s Washington Music Center has been a family owned and operated business since Chuck and Marge Levin opened its doors in a one- room shop in Washington, D.C. in 1958. During the riots of 1968, the store was burned down leaving nothing behind except for melted instruments and rubble. But, with the help of their longtime suppliers and faithful customers, they were able to find a new home in Wheaton, Maryland where they&rsquo;ve been located ever since. Chuck's is truly a family operation, and a great deal of our success is directly attributed to the close working relationship of their family. Chuck Levin&rsquo;s Washington Music Center strives every day to provide the most extensive knowledge combined with the largest inventory to insure that their customers can do anything and &ldquo;Everything in Music.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>Hosting Memorable Clinic and Events</strong></p> <p>Chuck Levin&rsquo;s Washington Music Center put a heavy focus on more clinics and in-store events for 2011.
