Who We Are

Jim & Deb

Founded in 1988, McCutcheon Music has been the result of Jim and Debbie  McCutcheon’s desire to create a music store where families can come for personal attention, excellent service, quality products and teachers who are professional musicians and the sort of individuals who can help take the guesswork out of finding the right music teacher.

Jim and Debbie McCutcheon moved their family to the Centerville area in 1988, in part because of the excellent music program in the schools and also because of the area’s commitment to the arts. Jim served on the Centerville Arts Commission for five years, and now works with the Arts Commission in hosting the annual GuitarFest in Stubbs Park.   They have a musical float in Centerville’s Americana Parade every year.

Originally housed at 18 East Franklin Street, we soon needed more space and in 1992, McCutcheon Music opened its doors at 42 and 44 Marco Lane in Washington Township.  We later expanded to 34 and 38 Marco Lane in 2002 with a larger band, orchestra and guitar showroom and full-service repair shop.

We currently have over 45 professional, experienced teachers and a staff of fine individuals who are committed to providing the best possible service to our customers. Rich Ervin directs our on-site repair service, and fixes band and orchestra instruments as well as guitars. Rich and his staff offer one of the best turnaround times available anywhere.
