What is DaCapo Primary Music?
DaCapo was founded 30 years ago with the goal of ensuring that every child recieves an equal education in music. Hiring a specialist music teacher is expensive and often limits learning to a narrow window of between 30 and 45 minutes per week. We have the solution.
DaCapo Primary Music provides flexible learning in the form of a whiteboard music programme that has been designed by some of the worlds leading experts in early years music education. All of our songs have been specially designed to teach key musical skills that set children up for a lifetime of music making. Our unique programme develops children's vocal skills, music literacy, rhythm and coordination, critical listening and expands their knowldge of orchestral and popular instruments.
Our lessons are full of calming musical activites that allow children to have fun and express themselves without over-excitement impacting their ability to learn. Pupils can also enjoy virtual musical demonstrations by our partners The Fantasia Orchestra, who also provide all of the accompaniments and backing tracks for our resource.
With prices starting at just £50 per class per year, DaCapo is on average 90% cheaper than a visiting music teacher, without compromising on the quality of education.
We reccommend 10 minutes each day. No planning required as the progression is built in to the resource. Important to select variety and not the same areas each time.
