Testimonials

Robin S., Student

...The relationship between students and teachers is very professional and I found that with communication we were able to discover what worked best for me with training and time slots. I am someone who has experienced many challenges including health issues and so, the friendliness and understanding found at the college was welcomed greatly. I would greatly recommend the teachers here for vocal training and any instrument.

Jodi-Lynn P., Parent

Would highly recommend Visionary College! My kids have been going there for the past ten years and we've always been very happy there. They've got wonderful teachers, and amazing performing opportunities. With the help of the wonderful teachers, my kids have won Rotary Scholarships, performed all over Alberta including K-Days and Big Valley Jamboree. Highly recommend!

Stephanie U., Parent

I starting taking music lessons at Visionary College as a mature student fourteen months ago. It has been an extremely safe, supportive, inspiring, and encouraging environment for me to explore my musical creativity.

The instructors are fabulous! As a result of the college's support and guidance, I am now singing with an Edmonton Ladies' Choir and I am participating in other music events around the city. I highly recommend Visionary College.
