Weymouth Pianos

About Weymouth Pianos

Weymouth Pianos was established in 1980 as Weymouth Piano Services by David Chitson and Michael Leonard. Our aim was to provide a top quality and reliable piano tuning, repair and maintenance service. The trading in new and second-hand pianos quickly followed as well as the highly respected piano restoration business. In 1991 Michael Leonard moved back to West Wales leaving David Chitson to grow the business, continuing with the well established values of the first successful decade.

40 years later, Weymouth Pianos is the leading piano specialists in Dorset. We regularly see second and third generations of our first clients from the 1980’s.  Over the years a huge wealth of experience and knowledge has been built up regarding all that is to do with pianos. Our services have been used by many well know musicians and establishments. We have tuned pianos in all sorts of places from Super Yachts and Cruise Ships right down to a humble garden shed!  Our high standards continue whether you have a Steinway concert grand or a basic upright piano.

All our piano tuning is done by qualified tuner/technicians. David Chitson, the proprietor, studied at Newark College and has been qualified for 40 years. He has City and Guilds London Institute qualifications in Piano Tuning and Toning, Piano Repairing and Reconditioning, Keyboard Instrument Design together with a Diploma in Piano Tuning, Maintenance and Repairs.
