Training for Musicians

This is an opportunity for musicians who have a real interest in training how to be excellent teachers. The course works with Kodaly and Eurythmics principles and a teaching method based on play. It will equip you to be a well-prepared music teacher who puts enjoyment at the heart of every lesson.

It’s a ONE-YEAR PLACEMENT (Saturdays and up to 10 weekdays through the year) with an offer of an ongoing teaching position on the pay scale on successful completion of the DaCapo Initial Certificate.

A bursary is offered.  For further information contact Michelle via email at jam@dacapo.co.uk or by using the link below.

Training for Class Teachers

DaCapo Online is an intuitive resource for primary class teachers and most will find that they can just ‘click and go’.

But we do offer training sessions for those who’d  like support or to learn more about the background to the programme.

These can be short zooms or half or full days.  For further information contact:  jam@dacapo.co.uk
