Band Programs & Recording

CARTER'S MUSIC CENTER offers programs for advanced students to enjoy the experience in playing together in ensemble/band programs. We generally sponsor 2 major functions per year; The Christmas Bash & The Back-to-School Bash! These events give the students an opportunity to perform for their friends & families, as well as give the student bands a chance to play live. CARTER'S MUSIC CENTER also performs every year at the Putnam County Fair.

Tony Showers - Instrument Repair & Technician

We are an approved vendor for all Putnam County Schools and assist in their music agenda for students. We are equipped to help any student enrolled in a music class. We also do all repairs and maintenance to all band instruments.

Our instructors work very hard in keeping the student moving forward in music education, or just keeping the student engaged especially through summer break. We are successful in keeping students excited about music and their instruments. This applies to home schooled students as well.

CMC is qualified to provide community service hours needed for music enrolled students who want to learn more about music, instruments, maintenance, and of course the Music Biz.

Periodically, we offer a separate Music Theory Workshop for those wanting to dig deeper into mastering their instrument, and gaining priceless knowledge of this art.
