Music is humanity's universal language, narrowly beating out such close contenders as Esperanto, The Simpsons references, and yodelled profanity.

Opened in 1996 by Jacqueline Serpas, a recipient of abundant awards from prestigious institutions such as the University of Victoria, Allegro Music Inc. has since imbued more than 500 students with a wealth of melodic and performance abilities. During private 30-minute lessons held over four consecutive weeks, a squad of qualified, educated teachers instructs apprentices all ages and skill sets in various musical styles on woodwinds, brass, or strings. In addition to supplying students with techniques for their specific instrument, instructors pass along their extensive knowledge of music and the industry, which range from working with ensembles to erecting sturdy tree forts out of cellos.
Allegro Music Inc.
Ranging from symphony violinists to music PhD candidates at York, the teachers at Allegro Music Inc. have worked with thousands of children and adults in music education programs since the school’s founding in 1996. In private, one-on-one classes, the musicians keep track of each student’s personal progress as they learn to master the dexterity to strum a guitar or the deep, booming voice to sing through a trombone. In addition to private sessions, Allegro Music offers group sessions in which pupils participate in theory discussions to better understand the intricacies of music.
