Music at Peninsula Grammar

There is now overwhelming evidence that music enhances the developmental pathways of children in many ways. It is accepted that music not only develops new skills, but also consolidates skills learned in other areas of the curriculum. Gross and fine motor skills consolidate coordination, rhythm and pitch assist with language development, music theory improves literacy, and ensemble music promotes collaborative social interaction and leadership skills. Instrumental and vocal lessons help students develop individual learning strategies.  Music technology complements e-learning throughout the school.

Music plays a central role in the educational and cultural life of Peninsula Grammar. Students enjoy a broad range of musical experiences from the ECC Junior Years Music Program to VCE in formal settings, to the flourishing instrumental and vocal programs, the less formal House Music and Performing Arts evenings, and the recently introduced Battle of the Bands.

In the Junior Years, ECC students receive a strong musical foundation. In-class concerts, in which students create their own works, are an integral part of the Junior Years program. In addition, an increasing number of students are undertaking individual instrumental lessons.

In the Junior and Middle Years, students have a weekly Classroom Music program, as well as participating in music-related incursions. The classroom program is complemented by the Year 2 String Program, the Year 5 Band Program, and the Britten and Strauss Choirs. You can learn more about our Instrumental and Choral programs here.

In the Middle and Senior Years the current combination of traditional classroom music with music technology ensures that students are being offered a 21st century music education that is both stimulating and relevant to student needs. Many students choose to study Music at VCE.
