Welcome to DaCapo Music Bookstore



Changes at Da Capo Music


Da Capo is now located on the top floor of Sappho Books, Café and Wine Bar on Glebe Point Road. It functions as a browsing and self-service second-hand music shop. Please come and visit us and spend some time leafing through our collection!

The point of sale for Da Capo is now at the Sappho Books desk downstairs.

We can do searches for you but as Da Capo is not staffed separately please be aware that emails are only responded to on a weekly basis. Please send all search requests via email or by calling Sappho Books (contact details below). We hope you understand that all recent changes have been made to keep Da Capo going. We know there is a demand for a second hand music shop like Da Capo!

Massive clean-up and reorganisation


We are in the process of a huge clean-up and reorganisation of Da Capo's stock. It looks fabulous and it is now much easier to find the items you are looking for.



 New in Stock - NEWS FLASH!! (12/03/14)

We just bought a humongous Trumpet and brass library. It includes  a huge number of studies and methods. trumpet music from beginners to serious repertoire. Jazz for trumpet...some very cool stuff!  Brass ensemble music and school level brass ensemble music.

As part of our huge clean-up we are processing and shelving lots of exciting new stock.  As well as the brass music above we have recently bought lots of  Mini Scores, Full Score Piano Music and some Saxophone Music. We are also restarting the Chamber Music section.
