ABOUT STACCATO MUSIC
A BRIEF HISTORY OF STACCATO MUSIC
Staccato Music was founded in 1981 as a music school by Carry Canninga, a master trumpet player, and his wife Trudie Canniga, a concert pianist. They soon realized the need to supply instruments to their students after which they started the sales division of Staccato. In the years thereafter, Staccato grew became a full service music store and the leading musical instrument supplier for the Garden Route and the Klein Karoo.
In 2007 Staccato was bought from the Canningas and received much needed make-over and fresh new start.
In 2011, 30 years later, Staccato Music relocated to it’s new, much bigger and current location at at St. Georges Square, Knysna Road, George.
In 2014 Staccato acquired it’s second branch. They bought RD Percussion, an established music store in Mosselbay, and changed the name to Staccato Music.
In 2015 Staccato Mosselbay also relocated to it’s new and current location, Shop 101, Langeberg Mall, Mosselbay.
