Music at St Philip's Christian College enriches the whole community and is an activity that most students enjoy. Students are able to be part of an ensemble, have private lessons, and study Music as a subject. In Junior School and Middle School, Music is part of their weekly lessons, and in Senior School students are able to choose to study Music as a subject or choose to learn an instrument at school. The study of Music in the Senior School aims to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for students’ active participation in performing, composing and listening, as well as experiencing an increased enjoyment of music.
