The Department of Music exists to develop musicians who are equipped to advance the cause of Christ through music ministry.


Located right next to the Magnificent Mile, in the upscale, thriving River North neighborhood of downtown Chicago, the Music Department offers training for future ministry vocation and careers in performance, education, church employment, worship ministry, multi-media, and entrance into top graduate schools.  

Our artist-faculty perform in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, and local, national, and international stages. Go on national and international tours with one of our four large ensembles and participate in worship teams, including the new Moody Worship Collective. 

Moody Bible Institute is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. Together with your musical studies, you’ll grow in your faith by learning from Moody’s renown faculty in Bible and Theology.
