The DaCapo Saturday Music Centre in North Finchley, London offers a friendly environment in which to learn music.
Every Saturday we offer Toddler Music Sessions, our Early Years Music programme for learners aged three to four and a half years, and our pioneering Integrated Music Programme for learners aged five years to adult.
All children are welcome. We don’t select pupils by ability. Because students of all ages and abilities are catered for under one roof, it is a perfect choice for families.
The Saturday Music Centre is located at Wren Academy, Hilton Avenue, North Finchley, London, N12 9HB.
“I like the relaxed friendly environment.” Pupil, Saturday Music Centre.
Classes take place between 9am - 3pm on Saturdays in term time. Weekly activities include:
- one-to-one musical lessons available in a wide range of instruments
- group lessons
- instrumental ensembles and singing circles
- further opportunities in choirs, orchestras, dance groups and extra ensembles
All classes are based on DaCapo's Kodaly and Eurythmics based teaching. See 'our approach' page for details.
