Apollo Music has great relationships with many stores that sell music equipment. Our students are eligible for student discounts from the list of providers below. Get in touch if you’d like to learn how to use your discounts!

We are an official Guitar Pro academic partner. Many our students use GuitarPro 7 software in their lessons – one of the greatest and cheapest music education tools that is currently available. We can offer a 50% discount to all our students – contact us to learn how to get your discount.


We have a Facebook group for all our students and their families. This is a hub for like-minded local musicians that we can all share in. A lot of cool video lessons are shared, as well as interesting links and articles. We have a lot of our lesson materials available to download from the Facebook page, so you can access your files from any computer, anytime. You never know, you may well find a band member on this page! Our teachers are part of the group too, and are actively part of our online community. Students/parents are sent the link to the group upon enrolling.
