As the owner of The Piano Shop Bath, I’m really passionate about pianos and my highly experienced team all share and convey that passion. Choosing the right instrument needs to be a considered process which takes time. As a team we enjoy helping our customers find the perfect piano. We are one of the largest piano showrooms in the South West, with a large range of unique and affordable new and restored pianos over two floors. In addition to the showroom and our piano restoration workshop, on a daily basis I manage our wide range of associated piano services, from customer restoration projects, piano removals and tunings to piano event hire. The showroom is open seven days a week however on my days off, I’m a proud father and husband who loves his family life. I’m also a modest but committed pianist!

Jenny is passionate about music and plays both piano and flute. She has taught both instruments in the past but now limits her music teaching to her own children, aged 8 & 9. One of the things she loves most about working in the piano shop is having the opportunity to get to know all the different pianos in the extensive and ever changing stock range. She finds helping customers in the decision making process very rewarding and loves the feeling of uniting the right piano with the right owners.
