Eugene Piano Company’s retail location inside M Jacobs Furniture Company may be relatively new to the Eugene Marketplace but its roots date back to the mid 1980’s. Because owner Mitch Paola has been in the piano business for over thirty years and has work closely with many associates and clients in the Eugene area; including University of Oregon, the Hult Center and the John G. Shedd Institute, opening a second location was a fairly easy decision. His new relationship with the Kawai Company, his confidence in Tom Turner, longtime piano technician in the mid-valley and his newly formed arrangement with M Jacobs, allows Eugene Piano Company to keep its overhead down and pass the savings on directly to the customer.
Mitch Paola, Owner
Mitch has lived his entire life in the greater Portland area and has been working in the piano world for 30 years. His appreciation of classical music started at a young age when he spent endless hours with his grandfather, the late Maurice (Moe) Schuster, Moe’s Pianos namesake, who was a concert violinist with the Portland Symphony.
Mitch joined the family business in the early 1980′s and became part owner. In 1989, Moe’s Pianos became part of Sherman Clay and Mitch became the General Manager. Mitch loves the challenge of finding the right piano for a particular client. He’s personally matched thousands of pianos to satisfied clients that include Steinway artists, baseball greats, NFL quarterbacks and NBA stars. He also has an ongoing partnership with many Universities, Schools, and Churches including University of Oregon, Portland State University, Reed College and Portland Opera.
Mitch believes you shouldn’t just buy a piano, you should own one you truly love to play.
