Da Capo Music

Selling your sheet music

Sell Your Sheet Music, Books and Records

We are keen to buy used sheet music and music books!

Please feel free to send us an email, or if you would prefer to talk, email us with your number, and we will call you when someone is next in the shop.

What are we buying?

We are mainly looking for modern playable editions, especially classical instrumental music. (Please note that we don’t work out quotes from lists, because we need to personally check the condition of all items! If you want us to give you an idea of whether your collection is usable to us, we can probably give you a rough idea based on a few photos, or descriptions of some of the titles and editions. We’re mostly looking for modern editions in usable condition, so please be aware that older collections which might have historical or sentimental value might not be of as much use to us, sorry!) We typically pay around $1 per usable item, but this figure may be higher or lower depending on the nature of your collection.

Buying music from interstate is not usually possible as we really need to view items for purchase. You are welcome to mail collections to us, but you will need to cover postage costs, and the risk that we won’t be able to use the collection if you don’t check with us first!

We are no longer looking to purchase vinyl records, CDs, or cassettes, sorry!

How selling to us works

  • DROP OFF: You can drop your music off, any time during shop hours which are  currently: 10 AM – 5 PM, every day. As soon as a Da Capo staff member has had a look we will contact you with our offer.
  • BY APPOINTMENT: If you would like us to assess you music & books on the spot, just send us an email and we can make a time when a Da Capo staff member will be in the shop.
  • PICK UP: Alternatively, if you have a reasonable sized collection, we might be able to organise a pick up. This will depend on where the music is located, and how valuable it is to us – please email us to check.

How we pay

We pay by either:

  • Direct deposit into your account.
  • Credit in the online store, in which case the offer is doubled.

If you have any further questions about selling your music, please don’t hesitate to email us: music@dacapo.com.au
