Allegro Music was founded in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1985 by Julie Parker Perry. At the time Julie was a choir director at a local church and was frustrated with how long it took to get her music orders delivered. She decided to open her own music distributorship to serve choir directors around the Memphis area. Her "allegro" service was immediately appreciated by her fellow choir directors and the home-based business soon evolved into a full-service music store. Other product lines were added including piano method books, Suzuki Method materials, classical collections, popular music, music supplies, and wedding music.
In 1998, the store went live on the web with Allegro Music Online, bringing quality service and selection to America and beyond.
In 2010, Julie moved the retail store to a new location in the Memphis suburb of Germantown, TN. The store continues to flourish and new products are added constantly, including improved lines of guitar and violin music.
Ms. Julie retired in December 2013, but her legacy of service continues! When you call us, you will speak to a real person - not an automated operator - who will be happy to assist you with your order or answer any questions. We personally invite you to experience our “allegro“ service for yourself!
