FROM THE INDUSTRY


“I am always impressed with the amazing level of the Soundhouse bands that demonstrates the organization’s commitment to education.   As an educator myself, I am confident Caleb’s innovations and vision are sure to impact not only music education, but the industry as a whole.”
– Steve Smith, Legendary Drummer of Journey

Caleb runs his ensembles like true professional groups. After performing with them for a full house at Carnegie Hall, I am amazed not only at their incredible performance level, but also their attitude and energy.  He is an inspiring teacher and brings out the best in his students.  If Caleb represents the future of music education, it is in good hands.
– David Sanborn, Six-time GRAMMY Winning Saxophonist

Caleb has been influential on Utah music for 3 decades now. He goes the extra mile to make sure music programs are always available to Utah’s young musicians.

FROM OUR PARENTS


My daughter has only been with you for a couple months. My goal for her was not just to play music, but to fall in love with it – and you’ve accomplished just that. Thank you!
-Tim Kapp, Parent

You have had a personal impact on our son beyond words. The opportunity to learn from you, play with his true peers in music and perform for thousands of people around the country has just been awesome. But most of all, your friendship, support and mentorship are the most valuable things he will take away from the Soundhouse.
– Kelly Olsen, Parent

What did my son learn at the Soundhouse?  A great work ethic, social skills, time management, stress management, responsibility, professionalism, and what it feels like to do something truly amazing . . . oh, and music too!
-Julie Veloo, Parent
