Serving the Ohio Valley for nearly 30 years

Special Statement March 17, 2020

CMA is closed temporarily through the end of March, 2020


As an education and retail facility with nearly 300 students per week, we have a great responsibility to safeguard and protect everyone who enters our store. Due to the current pandemic crisis, we feel the responsible decision is to temporarily close the store, to help inhibit the spread of the virus, and protect the health of our customers. Effective immediately through at least the end of March, we will have no lessons or classes and will close our retail sales and instrument repair departments. As the situation continues to evolve, we will follow government and health guidelines and will contact our customers when we reopen for business. We will also post updates on our Facebook page and website. Thank you for your understanding; we hope you will remain safe through this outbreak, and we look forward to serving you again soon.
