Let everything that has breath praise the Lord

Praise the Lord ... Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute. praise Him with the clash of cymbals... Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.


As Christians, we can use the gift of music to praise God, to express ourselves artistically, and to enjoy fellowship with one another. Since Old Testament times, it has been an integral part in the lives of all Christians – the Israelites rejoiced at crossing the Red Sea; they worshipped in the Temple and David composed many of our wonderful Psalms. Music is one of the highest forms of honour that we can present to the Lord. The Apostle Paul entreats us to “speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord, always give thanks to God…” (Eph. 5:19-20)

Instructional Philosophy for Teaching Music

Lifting up our voices in unison and in harmony, students offer praises to God in devotions, chapels, and music classes. At G.C.C.S., students are also given the opportunity to use rhythm instruments in the primary grades, study the recorder and tone-chimes in Grades 3-6 and learn to play a musical instrument in Grades 7 & 8. They learn to read music, to compose, and to perform various pieces for concerts, school functions, and to simply enjoy and share with their peers. Music theory, history and various cultural styles are also taught as part of the music program. Students are encouraged to use this gift for their own enjoyment and to be discerning of music that opposes a Christian worldview.
