Join the Moody Chorale, Repertory Singers, Moody Campus Orchestra, Worship Collectives, or Gospel Ensemble. Put your ministry training into practice as you travel around the United States and occasionally internationally.
All Moody students are involved in a Practical Christian Ministry each semester—many music majors tailor those required ministries to their music skills. Also, there are numerous requests for church musicians in Chicago that students can take advantage of. If you want to be busy in ministry, you will find many opportunities to do so.
Through our world music classes and world instrument collection, you can be exposed to music traditions and instruments from other cultures. Whether you end up working in the U.S. or another country, this exposure will provide richness to your music knowledge.
All music majors at Moody also take 34 credits of Bible and Theology courses.
All Moody students can take private music lessons in any area. There is also beginning class instruction in voice, piano and guitar. The music office on the second floor of Doane Memorial Music Building provides further information and assistance in signing up.
The Moody Bible Institute Community Music School hires qualified Moody music majors and graduates who are interested in teaching private or group lessons as a ministry and vocation in order to provide them with practical teaching experience before graduation.
"Moody Women's Concert Choir changed my life. It changed who I am. It gave me lots of opportunities to grow spiritually and relationally. Our conductor taught me so many nuggets of truth, gave me a love for choir conducting and women’s ministries. She modeled very practical ways to lead, and through her mentoring she strengthened my leadership abilities tremendously. We had a lot of fun with her, too."
