Playford IC is the only Musical Futures Champion School in South Australia, highlighting the best practice for Musical Futures and Roland work. Teachers from across the state are provided with exciting professional development programs, focusing on introducing and developing Musical Futures within a variety of educational settings, and on using Roland technology in the classroom.
Musical Futures was introduced in 2011 and provides the foundation for our Year 8 -10 Elective Contemporary Music program. It is also the basis of our new Primary Outreach Program (POP) where we deliver Musical Futures training to local primary teachers and run workshops together with their students.
The full VET Certificate 2 in Music is incorporated within the Contemporary Music program, and modules from the VET Certificate 2 in Music and Technical Production is incorporated within the music curriculum from Years 8 to 12. This is made possible through our partnership with the College Of Sound And Music Production (COSAMP) and the Technical Production Network (TPN). Delivery of the Certificate lll in Music began in 2017, the first of a 2-year course offered within the Year 11 Music curriculum.
