Music in the Bible

Apart from teaching musical concepts and disciplines to young students for free,
MCGI Music School champions the value of making and singing songs dedicated to the Almighty — how music is tackled in the Scriptures and its relevance to a person’s life. 

“Music is older than the world and praise songs are the oldest of musical kinds.” (Job 38:7)
— Brother Eli Soriano

“If we hear lyrics, music, and notes being used in many different ways, it is most important to use these for their greatest purpose, and that is in the praise of the Lord.”
— Brother Daniel Razon
