5 decades and counting

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.

As student enrollment grew, Joe moved Allegro Music upstairs to street level.

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, Frank seized the opportunity and became the third owner.

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



In the words of our customers . . .


"I am really glad with the service and professionalism of the staff at Allegro Music. Me and my family went there to get an assessment on what we wanted and the staff was fantastic at listening and assessing what we needed in terms of keyboards and guitars. We loved the experience and will continue making business with Allegro.
