5 decades and counting
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
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.

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.
