Customer Testimonials


Over the past 65 years we've sold over 12,000 pianos and 1,200 organs. We have numerous satisfied customers, many who took the time to write us letters or emails thanking us. Bellow are some of these, we hope you enjoy them as much as we did. 

Dear Mr. Dove, 

Thank you for the magnificent installation of the organ. It is all quite grand. It will be a showpiece for the organist guild when they come to visit in September. 

Many Thanks,

Paul Fisk 




Dear Mr. Dove, 

My need to have several follow-up questions answered prompted me to express the appreciation of my entire family for the outstanding service extended to us by you and your staff while we were researching and making a piano purchase earlier this summer. We were looking to purchase a piano for our granddaughter but neither my wife or I play. This made the decision more difficult but you took the time to educate us, demonstrate the piano, and allow me the time to research and confirm your recommendations. Not only were you correct in your sales presentation, but I have since found numerous musicians in our community who speak very highly of your ability as well as the products you represent. 

On behalf of both Jane and myself, a most sincere thank you for your courtesy and the time spent with us to make a decisions that our family is most pleased and happy with. 

Best wishes for your continued succes.

Hi Josh, 

Thank you for my beautiful piano. I still can't believe how much I love it. I was nervous about buying it sight unseen, but decided to listent to my instinct and trust you, I'm very happy I did. I wanted to wait until my piano tuner looked at it to write you. He liked it so much he stayed after tuning to play it. He said the piano was restored using the best components and that he thought I got a great value. I am really enjoying it. 

Warm Regards,

Whitesel Music's new location provides a very welcoming venue for performers. I played at their concert series with JMU flute professor, Beth Chandler and we enjoyed the nice atmosphere, with a great, charming room, very friendly staff and a delicious reception afterwards. Bravo!

Dear Mr. Dove, 

At the request of the Session of Broadway Presbyterian Church and on behalf of the members of the church, I am writing to express our gratitude for your generous donation of a very nice Kimball Studio Piano. This piano has a notably bright and beautiful sound that I and the congregation love. We are thankful that you considered us for receiving such a nice instrument and for specifically seeking to maintain the relationship this church has had with Whitesel Music, dating back to the installation of our Allen Organ by your grandfather, Carroll Motsinger, when Eddie Branner was our organist. We wish you and your business continued success. 

Thank you so very much and to God be praise!

Dear Potential Whitesel Music Patron, 

I had the pleasure of working with Josh Dove, owner of Whitesel Music, this past year. I am the Choral Director at East Rockingham High School. As administrators and I pursued the purchase of pianos for our new facility, Josh was extremely helpful. Because of past experiences, the school division had planned to purchase a Yamaha P22 Grand Piano. Upon recommendation from Mr. Dove we were able to purchase a used Kawai 6'6" Semi Concert Grand for considerably less than the smaller Yamaha P22. The Kawai is excellent. The piano presents like a new instrument. The Whitesel Music staff exhibited professionalism and promptness in dealing with our needs. As funds became available we were also able to install a piano lab in the Choral classroom with the guidance from Mr. Dove and his staff. I would encourage your patronage of Whitesel Music. We have found them to be a knowledgeable partner for our school community. 

Best wishes as you pursue musical excellence,

Terri Butler
