Welcome to the PHSC Music Department homepage!

Princes Hill offers a robust music program that covers instrumental music lessons, music theory lessons, ensembles, and classroom music. Please take the time to navigate through the various resources we have available to find out more about our program.

Performance Opportunities

The Music Department strives to provide performance opportunities for all students throughout the school year with multiple concerts, soirees, and gigs held each term. Our ensembles also perform regularly at festivals and events, including the Mount Gambier Jazz Festival, the Victorian School Bands Festival, The Royal Melbourne Hospital Live Music is Good For You and many local school fetes and events.

We have a rich history of students continuing onto tertiary education at leading universities such as The VCA and Monash University, as well as establishing themselves in the music industry. Recent alumni include The Vovos, The Cactus Channel, Gretta Ray, and Karate Boogaloo.

Ensemble Program

All students having instrumental lessons at PHSC participate in the ensemble program. Rehearsals are weekly and are run outside of normal class times. Ensembles are a great way for students to improve sight reading, rhythm, and ensemble playing skills whilst connecting with others outside of their usual class and year level.
