Overview

Overview

Visible Music College says

Visible Music College is an independent college designed to prepare artists, technicians and business professionals for skilled, relational service in the arts industries and the church. We "get" the idea that creative young people need a place to develop technical and artistic skills while growing in character and being empowered in their calling. Visible fills the gap in education where vocational colleges, Bible colleges, universities, and the school of experience cross but don't meet. Visible Music College offers a holistic program that is academically challenging, vocationally practical, and spiritually empowering. Visible Music College was born out of a need in this generation - a need to rise up and lead in true worship of God through the arts, ministry and technology. We share a common vision of using our gifts and talents to impact the world. Visible is more than a college campus, it is a community of artists who desire to bring the culture of God's kingdom to modern society. Come and join the revolution.
