About Da Capo Academy of Music

Our Story

Da Capo Academy of Music (DCAM) began as an in-home piano studio and opened its doors at Humbertown Shopping Centre in September 2018. Our name comes from the Italian musical term “Da Capo”, which translates to “from the top” – hence our slogan: “Teaching music from the top!” At DCAM, we offer private music lessons to students of all ages and skill levels and also prepare them for RCM exams (Royal Conservatory of Music), recitals, auditions, and competitions. To showcase their progress, students have an opportunity to participate in one or both of our bi-annual music recitals. We are passionate about music and love to pass this passion on to our students! Whether you are a parent wanting to start your child on a musical path or an adult who has finally decided seriously start learning a music instrument – we would love to have you at our school!

Our Mission

At DCAM, we are serious about our mission, which is three-fold:

1. To enrich the lives of our students through music
We strongly believe that playing a musical instrument makes life richer, more interesting and more colourful. We are proud to be able to impart this skill to our students.

2. To provide quality music education tailored to our students’ goals, abilities, and interests
We listen to our students and parents carefully and do our best to tailor their lessons in a way that would best meet their individual goals, abilities, and interests.

3. To create a fun, safe, friendly, and inclusive environment for both students and teachers
We are convinced that individuals learn and work best in an environment that is fun, safe, friendly, and inclusive. Maintaining such an environment is one of our top priorities.
