So much more …
Established in 1991, DaCapo was initially a Saturday Centre with a Kodaly approach, very unusual at the time! Teacher training grew from the need to train our own teachers and then others asked us to train for them – individuals, schools and local authorities (now music hubs). Then followed a small publishing arm, because we needed tutor books and repertoire and suitable teaching materials were nowhere to be found. Commissioning quality materials was an important part of our growth and development.
In addition, we now work with partners to deliver high quality projects for children, both on a Saturday in North London and in schools and other venues further afield.
At the core of everything we do is the aim to be ambitious, creative and to make music fun – still all based on the Kodaly and Eurythmics approach.
