Meet the Team
Classic Pianos Alaska is a collaboration between Classic Pianos’ founder, Maurice Unis, and a national team of piano specialists who met in Alaska more than 20 years ago and who share a devotion to supporting the Alaska music communities and arts organizations.
Mike has worked with Classic Pianos for more than 10 years, having begun selling pianos in 1998 after a successful Air Force career. He’s an accomplished trombonist, and has been a musician with the Anchorage Jazz Ensemble for over 25 years. He’s also a founding member of the Anchorage Brass Choir and an avid Pickleball player who also enjoys spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Maurice represents the third generation of the Unis family and he, along with his three sons and an incredible team of piano professionals, have built the largest and most awarded piano dealership in North America. He often says that there is no secret to success: “Just give the buyer the widest possible choice, devote yourself to customer service, and be happy to take the piano back on a trade-up, no matter how many years down the line.”
As Head of Operations, Brian is the go-to person to ensure all aspects of the organization are running at full-steam. Starting in the business as a teenager, Brian still works tirelessly, striving to meet and exceed customer expectations. With a love of pianos and a deep commitment to customers, Brian can always be counted on for doing anything to ensure customers are delighted with their purchase.

“I am a piano technician in Los Angeles with a client in Fairbanks, Alaska in search of a high-end upright piano. We canvassed piano stores all the way up and down the west coast. My client finally chose a Schimmel K-132 from Classic Pianos of Portland, Oregon. Fred Riley had come recommended from another client who recently traveled to several major cities in pursuit of a concert grand, and had told me that Fred was the “real deal” when it comes to piano sales people. Fred’s communication was excellent, and he was clearly willing and able to “go the extra mile,” both figuratively AND quite literally! Next time I have a client willing to travel to find the right instrument, my first call will be to Fred.”
