The principal of a music education charity in Golders Green has won a national award for excellence.

Jane Cutler, principal of the DaCapo Music Foundation, won the editor’s choice award at this year’s Music Teacher Awards for Excellence.

DaCapo Music Foundation is based at Wessex Gardens Primary School where Ms Cutler co-runs a Saturday music centre for families as well as a school music programme throughout the week.

Editor of the Music Teacher Thomas Lydon said: “The DaCapo Music Foundation aims to find many ways to get quality music-making to children, and over the last 22 years, this aim has been gloriously realised, enriching the lives of thousands of students through its music centres, summer schools and its work in schools and nurseries.

“From a formative period teaching alongside Sheila Nelson at the famous Tower Hamlets Strings project, where Jane Cutler came into contact with Kodály and Dalcroze methods, she went on to develop her own syllabuses, creating, in DaCapo, an outstanding education channel for students of all ages."
