Welcome to 

Da Capo Music

Australia’s only second-hand sheet music store.

Da Capo Music is Australia’s only dedicated second-hand music bookshop – now online!

Please note – our online store now only lists our chamber music and vocal scores. For inquiries regarding all other sections, including solo instrumental music, vocal albums, and all music books, please send an email to [email protected]. We’re happy to search our shelves for you if you’re looking for something specific!

We are offering FREE postage for all orders over $40 to anywhere in Australia!

Updates will be posted on our Facebook page, so please ‘like’ and follow the Da Capo Music page if you would like to stay in contact.

Here’s the silver lining of  social distancing for musicians —we can still make lots of music! What better time to practise, improve, and learn new repertoire?  Many people are discovering the fun of connecting with others by making music online, by streaming recitals, or producing collaborative multi-tracked works!

Our Stock

Our sheet music sections are sorted by instrument, with shelves devoted to violin, viola, cello, clarinet, flute, oboe, saxophone, piano, organ, and many more! Most of these sections are further divided into concertos, sonatas, studies, etc. We also have sections for choral scores, full scores, mini (study) scores, vocal music, folk music, method books, popular songbooks, and fake books, as well as a selection of antiquarian sheets.

We have a wide range of music books too: composer biographies, books on jazz, pop and classical history, ethnomusicology, music therapy, music theory and analysis, instrumental technique, and conducting, to name a few!

We also stock a large number of vinyl records, covering jazz, rock/pop, and many truly iconic classical recordings. Have a browse through our collection if you want to experience your favourite music in its original recorded format.
