This really is the only place to be... for music education that is relevant, excellent and inspiring.

When re-designing the Studio and Ensemble Music Program at Peninsula Grammar I had two clear objectives - make it excellent and make it relevant.  Whilst preserving the great benefits of musical tradition, music needs to inspire and exist in the community and the mind of the student as a relevant part of todays culture.  

By shifting learning towards 'content creation', utilising technologies to write, arrange, record  and produce from early in the child's development, an inspired well rounded musician is formed.  Combine that with our array of ensembles from Jazz groups, Stage Bands, A'cappella choirs, Symphony Orchestras and a calendar full of performance opportunities alongside world class performers and staff members, I really believe there isn't a better place to be for excellent music. All that alongside an excellent schooling program. 

This site is the centre of what we do at Peninsula Grammar Music Department.  You can download work from staff and students, enjoy their performances, book tickets for our next event or spend time reading words of wisdom from our teachers.  

Looking forward to seeing you at an event this year. 

Dr. Richard Vaudrey - Head of Ensemble and Studio Music.

The work the music dep does to bring kids out of their shells, to be creative, daring, and have a go is first class. Tonight’s music concert was inspiring. Seriously - you guys rock

Tonight was a magnificent night of music in terms of organisation, performance standard and diversity. I felt like I was at a concert external to the school environment. Oscar has now found his place at school.

Last night’s concert was incredible – without doubt one of the best I have seen here in my 17 years.
Congratulations to everyone for creating such a positive and vibrant experience for each and every performer and audience member.

This is a fabulous concept and an excellent opportunity to experience professional music performance of such a high standard at school.
