We are celebrating our 50th Anniversary!

In the winter of 1971, an enterprising guitarist named Joe Gillon opened Allegro Music in the basement of our current location. He built two teaching rooms at the back of the Cavalier Barber Shop, taught some music lessons and rented out a few Yamaha guitars. In 1975, Joe moved Allegro Music upstairs to its current location.

In 1983, Herman Mallinger bought the store. He taught violin and woodwinds, and his daughter Rosyl instructed piano.

After spending 20 years as an Allegro Music employee, Frank Cretaro decided it was time for a change. So when Herman put the store up for sale in 1997, Frank seized the opportunity to become the third owner.

From our humble beginnings, we have grown into one of Toronto's most respected music schools and retail stores.

Your musical journey begins here!
