Music

Plympton International College offers a comprehensive and exciting music program for students of all ages.

In our Classroom Music Program, students learn to sing, play, read and compose music using movement, body percussion, voice and percussion instruments, developing the basics from Reception to Year 9.

Students continue to develop their instrumental music skills in a classroom by learning the recorder in Year 3 and the ukulele in Years 4 – 6.

Year 7 – 9 learn rock instruments, including keyboard, guitar, voice and percussion. Year-level Ensembles (Bands) are made within the class.
