The Methodist School of Music (MSM) was founded in 1997 as an agency of The Methodist Church in Singapore and is registered with the Ministry of Education.
MSM’s three-fold thrust is to:
- Nurture individuals, regardless of race or religion, towards musical excellence
- Contribute towards the development of music in Singapore and the region
- Equip Christians for the needs of the music ministry
Historically, the Church has been the place where music and the arts were greatly encouraged and developed. The Methodist Church, in particular, has a rich Wesleyan tradition of singing. In keeping with this tradition, MSM’s goal is to equip and edify both the individual and the church through music and the performing arts.
The School offers instruction in various instruments, singing and ballet, as well as runs courses on church music, worship and liturgy.
