“John [Slavick] made the Piano sound really warmer, richer, and deeper. When he finished work-ing on the piano, it was reborn.”Hiromi Uehara, Sensational International Concert Pianist
“The difference John [Slavick] made on the Yamaha piano’s evenness, tonality, clarity, and projec-tion was truly night and day. He made my normally difficult job of amplifying an acoustic piano in a rather loud setting quite easy. Thank you, John!”Daniel Pettit, Road Manager and Audio Engineer

“I love incorporating technology into my studio and have been using quite a few Yamaha Acoustics, Clavinovas and Hybrid pianos in creating music, playing group music and daily teaching. The service of Classic Pianos is excellent. I always got the prompt support from the store. My students are having so much fun experimenting and practicing on these pianos daily.”Olive Yau, Owner and Principal Teacher

“I have had the pleasure of working with John Slavick at Classic Pianos for the past 3 years. He has helped many of my students find the perfect piano for their home, school or business. John is very knowledgeable, personable and professional. I would highly recommend Classic Pianos if you are looking to purchase a piano.”Barbara Rollins, Pianist and Teacher

“I purchased a new Yamaha C-6 from Classic Pianos in October of 2012. This was after three or four years of visiting their showroom numerous times - "kicking the tires and tickling the ivories"...so often that John Slavick suggested (in a very nice way) that I might consider bringing a bed, chair and microwave and living there. Through all my visits, John was always very accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. Classic Pianos made the purchasing process, delivery and complimentary tuning/voicing very easy and efficient. The piano has been all that I had hoped it would be and more and a great source of satisfaction to see the excitement my students experience in playing it.”Cliff Lenz

“Classic Pianos in Bellevue is unsurpassed in quality and customer service. From the first time I stepped in the store, I was amazed at the selection of excellent instruments, as well as the condition that every piano was in. The voicing and regulation done by John Slavick is unsurpassed; he really takes the effort to bring out the individual beauty and character of the pianos. The staff is always helpful and knowledgeable and do everything they can to ensure a comfortable environment during your selection process. As a teacher and a concert pianist, I refer all my students to Classic Pianos when they are looking to purchase a higher-quality instrument. I can be sure that they are getting the best pianos available in the Pacific Northwest.”Krystle M.

“We bought a Yamaha Piano in Classic Pianos Bellevue for our little daughters. We do not have any piano skill and experience, so we were nervous when we got in store. But the staff was very professional, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Our sales representative Haidi Yang showed us options in all price ranges, and did not talk disparagingly about the cheaper options. Then she kindly left us alone, while we wandered the place, trying out various pianos. After a couple hours, we found a right one we can afford . The price was exactly what we expected. We got a good price when we have a negotiation. Piano delivered very quickly with great experiences services. We also have free coupons for turning. Classic Pianos has a trade-in policy. If we wish to up- grade, we can sell the piano back to them at full price or trade the new model that we like. We highly and definitely recommend checking out Classic Pianos Bellevue.”Vang D.

“We bought a fantastic piano from Classic Pianos recently. Appreciated their friendliness and professional advice. John, Haidi and Frank were all very helpful in suggesting which one is best for our needs. I learned all the pros and cons about different brands and models although it was a time consuming task. They truly helped me and it was worth the time. Impressive back room to find the one we want. It's like a dream came true, a best friend in my house.”Linda M.

“My visit to the store was very impressive. The store had a large inventory and I was able to find the piano I was hoping to buy. The customer service I received was superior and I was very glad that I was able to ask some more specific questions about tuning and quality and get answers from a employee who is also a tuner. The employees KNOW what they're talking about. This store really prides itself on selling a quality product and making the piano buying experience easy for everyone who walks in the door. Please visit Classic Pianos if you want to make a great investment in a quality product!”Martin O.

“I have bought a Yamaha CLP 430 at this store and I was highly satisfied with my experience. The staff, especially Heidi, who helped us, was very friendly and helpful. We took our time to choose the right instrument for my daughter and played almost all the pianos in the store. When I need to upgrade, then I definitely come back to this store.”Barnabas B.
