Mr. Brian Plagge

Hello! My name is Brian Plagge, and I am the band director at Perth Amboy High School. I have been teaching for 14 years, with the last 5 here in Perth Amboy. I love my job, and I love my students. I am excited to begin this year and make new music and new memories! This year the courses I am teaching include:


Freshman Concert Band at the Freshman Academy
Main Campus Concert Band
Music Theory and Composition
Wind Ensemble
AP Music Theory

I am also the Marching Band Director, a position I am immensely proud to hold. The band is continually growing, improving and making ourselves known in the state of New Jersey. If you have Instagram, you can follow us at to see what we are up to in the classroom and on the field!

My email is in the upper lefthand corner of this page; you can email me at any time with any questions or concerns and I will respond to you within 24 hours, if not sooner. I can also be reached through Google Voice, the information for which will be posted on your class's Google Classroom, should you prefer a quicker and more direct form of communication.
