About Collinsworth School of Music

Joseph E. Bolin, DMA

At CBU, we believe in inspiring students to Live out Their Purpose. Eph. 2:10 tells us that “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works that He has prepared for us…” This means that God has designed each one of us with a specific set of strengths and abilities to facilitate the realization of His plan for our lives.

If God has invested in you the gift of musical talent, it was not by accident. It was given to be developed to its full potential and unveil His majesty, character, and glory to the world.

The Collinsworth School of Music is committed to challenging young musicians to live out their purpose by inspiring them to artistic and technical excellence.
