What People Are Saying About Us
"I've worked with David for years and there's no other person I'd trust with my piano. He's always on time and clearly addresses any questions or concerns I may have. My piano sounds amazing when he's finished and holds its tune far better than it did with any prior tuner. He's a true professional!"
-James S. (March 2021)
"We have trusted our vintage Steinway Model M to David Weiss Piano Tuning for almost 20 years. He takes exceptional care of it, tuning, repairing when needed and, I suspect, whispering to it gently so it keeps performing for us year after year. Excellent work."
-Mary Fisher (January 2022)
"l live in Charlottesville and on Thursday morning Dylan Weiss came to service my piano. I wanted to let you know that he did an amazing job. He did a great job tuning and cleaning the inside of the piano. I'm so grateful and appreciate the very beautiful and hard work that he did."
-Nicole Beasley (January 2022)
"I'm so glad I found this company! I've had my Yamaha piano for years and recently moved. A key needed to be repaired and the piano was due for a tuning. Karl phoned in advance and let us know he was on his way. He is an accomplished musician / piano tuner / teacher. We enjoyed having him in our home. Karl fixed the broken key and tuned the piano perfectly! Karl is a perfectionist. I feel like I have a new piano. I highly recommend this piano service"
-Diane Burkett (February 2022)
"Dylan did a phenomenal job! My piano is ringing so clear now and is in perfect tune. He also fixed an aspect of the piano that made me believe it might be time to get a new one. Wonderful job, service, and a level of expertise that is just rare to find anymore."
-Kris Bowmaster (February 2022)
"David Weiss is a master piano technician. He has been servicing our 1967 Yamaha G2 piano for many years now. In 2017, with the piano fifty years old, it was time to rebuild the action. David skillfully removed the action, took it to his shop, and rebuilt it as needed. Th re-installation was most precisely accomplished with the result that the piano has performed as if brand new. This was done in timely and cost effective manner.
I would recommend David without hesitation or equivocation."
"Phenomenal technician David truly cares about his customers and the pianos he works on. Customer service and attention to detail are impeccable. Recommend most highly!"
Founder and Executive Director Front Porch Roots Music School
"David Weiss is fantastic! When we were looking to purchase a piano in the fall of 2009, I reached out to my boys' music teacher at their school, and she recommended David Weiss. After David inspected a number of pianos at Charlottesville Piano and walked us through each one, he recommended a Kawai that we still love to this day. Since the purchase, David has been our piano tuner and tunes our piano every 6 months. He also installed a humidity control system to help maintain the integrity of the piano. David is very professional and highly skilled, arriving to every appointment on time. There have been times, due to my work schedule, where I've had to leave a key for him to enter our home for the piano tuning; I have trusted David and felt very comfortable letting him tune with no one home. I would recommend David enthusiastically to anyone searching for a piano tuner or a consultant in making the investment of a piano purchase."
"I have used David for years and appreciate his professionalism, attention to customer care and skill. I'm thrilled with the extensive work he did on my Baldwin grand piano last year! I love the feel of the action now, which had become very worn from years of use, and the greatly enhanced sound. I highly recommend his services!"
Jeanne Jackson, Piano teacher.
President of Charlottesville Music Teachers Association.
"David Weiss has been fabulous to work with. We had one old piano that needed a tuning badly, and one baby grand that we thought was beyond repair. However, David came by, assessed the situation, gave a detailed and fair estimate, then performed the work quickly and professionally. We are so happy with the results and excited to be able to use them both again! I recommend David Weiss for any of your piano needs!"
Lucy Akers-Allen, Principal

"David Weiss has been invaluable in keeping my piano in top shape for nearly eight years. I initially asked him to tune a piano that had gone badly off during a move, and subsequently worked with him to keep that piano in tune in an apartment with wildly fluctuating temperatures and humidity. He succeeded. In this, and in evaluating other work or potential work that could be done, David has always taken a practical approach. I trust him and value his advice on all things piano related."
Just a note to let you know. The sound of my piano is spectacular. After several years of distance, I feel that I have my piano back. The beauty brought tears to my eyes Thank You"
"My family couldn't be happier with the service we received from David Weiss Piano. We have an old piano that belonged to my great-grandmother, and it hadn't been given the attention it deserved in several years. David was extremely quick to respond to our needs and our piano is feeling like the grand old lady she is once again. From tuning and restoration to custom string covers and humidity systems, there is nothing that this company can't do. We can't recommend them highly enough and we will use them exclusively in the future. If you have a cherished piano that needs attention for a reasonable price, look no further than David Weiss."
I just wanted to express, in writing, how very pleased I’ve been with the piano services you have provided. From joining me to verify that the freecycle piano was worth the effort, up to and including today’s 2nd tuning, You and Lucas have helped bring beautiful piano music back to my life. The piano sounds absolutely fantastic now!"
"I am a piano teacher in Ivy and have worked with David for over ten years. I have always been impressed with his knowledge and skill. I currently play on grand piano that he refurbished. I would recommend him to anyone with a piano in Charlottesville."
Mike Anderson. Piano teacher, musician, Public television producer.
"David is an excellent technician and musician -- so he brings both skill and a keen ear to his trade. He has tuned our piano for years and I highly recommend him for regularly scheduled tuning as well as repair and maintenance issues. 5 stars!!!"
Nancy Paulson. Vocal Coach.
"Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the tuning and voicing you gave our piano. The Piano once again has the sound we love! It is like welcoming an old friend back. Thank you so much!"

"I am happy to report that my Yamaha U1E upright piano that you repaired last spring has been working perfectly and has inspired me to start playing again on a regular basis."
Gavin G. Professor of engineering
"Just wanted u to know how much I appreciate your help and work on the piano. Plays better than any piano I tested including those way out of my price range. You make it exciting to get off of work and lose myself in playing. Big ups. Thanks again and again."
Neil C., .Professional musician
I’d like to convey very high marks for the piano service today. The technician was efficient, professional, friendly, and I was very pleased with him. My husband and I were impressed by his knowledge and obvious expertise, and we deeply appreciated him taking the extra time to answer all my questions. Side note: I also thoroughly enjoyed hearing him play a little bit as he tested his work near the end. Because the Steinway is a treasured family piece, having been given to my mother in 1945 by my grandfather, it was truly delightful to hear it played so beautifully once again, if only briefly. I look forward to recommending your company to others.
