Allegro Music was established in 1988 by sisters Koula and Mary Raptis.
After renovating the property to suit their teaching practice Allegro opened its doors on 18th of October 1988 at 594 South Road Glandore. Within the next three years the studio had grown with 200 students enrolled and staff of specialist instrumental teachers.
All lessons delivered on site in the spacious teaching rooms.
In 1993 the sisters Raptis purchased the property next door (592 South Road) to provide more teaching rooms, a larger recital room and more parking.
Allegro's 5th birthday was celebrated in style at the Wonderland Ballroom with a huge concert and a huge cake!!
Fast track to 2007 when the Gallipoli underpass was under construction and the character Villas where Allegro was first established were sadly demolished. Fortunately Allegro found a new home just around the corner after the purchase of a lovely ART DECO building at 116 Anzac Highway Glandore.
Following renovations, lesson delivery began on Monday April 30th 2007.
Today Allegro Music celebrates 28 years of Music Education. It has evolved into a unique, well recognised and respected teaching practice through the combination of traditional and their own teaching methodologies.
Allegro Music students are well taught by Koula & Mary Raptis in the subjects of
Piano, Violin, Viola, Theory, Ensemble Studies and Performance Practice Studies.
Students also study towards AMEB examinations conveniently held at Allegro.
