Joy and Delight

“Just a brief note to try to put into words the joy and delight I experienced yesterday after the exceptional tour through Classic Pianos … and the sincere and genuine enthusiasm and hospitality you evidenced … I walked by the store and got the urge to come in, and the magic began the moment I stepped inside and experienced the warmth of its environment.”

“I have known Maurice Unis, and some of his associates, for over twenty-five years. His understanding of technical rebuilding and piano restoration is, in a word, ‘unparalleled.’ The rebuilding of vintage Steinways at Classic Pianos is the finest of any store I’ve ever seen.”

“I had a terrific piano buying experience at Classic Pianos. Brian was patient and never pushy as I visited multiple times over the course of a few weeks. He listened to my (somewhat evolving) wish list and worked hard to find the perfect instrument for me …”

Wonderfully Supportive

“The staff at Classic Pianos are incredibly knowledgeable and were able to recommend pianos appropriate for our use at Mountainside HS – both in terms of their use and our budget! They are also wonderfully supportive of the wider music education community and have provided great service and value with the piano rentals provided to Solo & Ensemble events around the state. For outstanding service, exceptional knowledge, and just wonderful people, you can’t do better than Classic Pianos!”

Magical Musical Connection

“It is an absolute joy to walk into the lobby of Artists Rep and, as audiences are leaving a show, one sits down and plays the piano for a while. Last week a huge group of high school students gathered round while one of them played.

Classic Pianos has gifted us with that type of magical music connection, and I am forever grateful!”

“As an adult fulfilling a lifelong desire to play the piano, I was incredibly inspired by the best selling book, ‘The Piano Shop on the Left Bank.’ The book opened a whole new world to me. The first time I walked into Classic Pianos and found myself amidst the beautifully restored vintage pianos, I felt as if I might be in Paris and that I had discovered a similarly passionate world of piano right here in Portland.”

    Where do I even begin?! Fred Riley absolutely blew us away with our entire experience. He was so knowledgeable, kind, honest, and genuinely a ton of fun. He helped us find the dream piano, let us hang out in his amazing office/studio for … More a bit, and even played us a few things. As far as customer service goes, I’m not sure anywhere can beat this place. Everyone was incredible. They will bend over backwards to help you find exactly what you want and make sure you have a blast during the whole process. 10/10 recommend!

    Fred was very fun and friendly. He helped get me set up with a piano rental for the short 3 months that I am in Portland and made sure to squeeze me into their busy delivery schedule since I’m here for a short period of time.

Excellent Service

“Amazing! Incredible! After 20 years of not playing I met Rick at the store and his tour was so inspiring I decided that I wanted a new piano on the spot. Such excellent service and a great financing deal. No regrets! Thank you Classic Pianos!”

“Purchased a piano about 2 weeks ago. Peggy was just AMAZING! I told her my budget and was expecting to purchase a used piano but she worked with me and my budget and I was able to take a brand new piano home!! I couldn’t be happier!

Very happy with my purchase and would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to purchase a piano.”

“I needed a reliable in-tune piano on a shoestring budget. Rick Zachery guided me to a gently used Yamaha Clavinova that fit the bill. The staff are courteous, knowledgeable and professional. Their policy allows you to trade-in a purchased instrument within two years at full value toward an upgrade — which tells you that they are sincerely dedicated to providing quality pianos for any household. It’s worth a visit just to look at the beautiful array of instruments they have in their showrooms. I would do business with Classic Pianos again.”

We Felt Like Part of Their Team

“We partnered with Classic Pianos to purchase a new Yamaha C7X for our College Theatre as well as new upright pianos in all of the practice rooms at Mt. Hood Community College. The staff at Classic Pianos made us feel like part of their team as they evaluated our needs and advised us on which pianos would best fit each space on campus. They are the type of people that you want to partner with not just for one project, but for life!”
