Creatio is Best Described by a Single Word: Wow.

It appears quite unassuming from the outside. But nestled within the Barton building on NU's campus is one of the Northwest's best-kept secrets: a state-of-the-art music program called Creatio.

Creatio is the only four-year accredited school in the Pacific Northwest to offer in-depth training in the recording arts and music industry business.

If your goal is to become a leader in the arts and entertainment industry, Creatio can help you get there from here. Most importantly, it's all done within the framework of a distinctly Christian environment.

We invite you to take a tour of our studios to see all that we have to offer. If the first word out of your mouth is "Wow," don't worry.

We hear it all the time.
