What our organization offers: 
Visible Music College trains and equips musicians, technicians, and business professionals in skill and character for effective service in the music industry and in the Church. Located in Memphis, Tennessee, our focus as a creative Christian community is bigger than any single church or artists. Together. Inspired. Drive. Focus. Welcome.

The Story of Visible

Visible Music College was started by Ken Steorts who, while touring with his band Skillet, saw many young Christain musicians with great promise, but had little instruction, guidance, or purpose. In 2000, Ken and a small team of creative folks launched the vision of Visible Music College, which is special in the world of higher education. Within a few years, the college was accredited, hundreds of students were coming to Memphis, and programs were full to the point of starting other small communities around the world and online.

In 2012, Visible acquired an abandoned iconic Downtown Memphis architectural landmark and brought it to life again with a redesign and repurposing of the space at 200 Madison Avenue into our flagship campus. It was transformed into a music training hub. Visible is alive with music and students from 50 states and 30 countries, partnering with hundreds of churches globally for shared training. The waves of change reverberated off the core of the city and caused new investment along the Madison corridor – new restaurants, business, housing – a place alive and buzzing today.

Visible Music College is a globally integrated training community that challenges students toward a bachelor’s, master’s degree, or one year certificate programs. From Sarah Simmons (NBC’s The Voice) to indie darlings Carolina Story, national tours with Mosaic worship or CCM stars like Terrian Bass, Visible alumni are on the charts, in the studio, and making a huge impact of leadership in the church.
