Soundhouse Story


In November of 1998, while still in college, Caleb Chapman, began a small music school in American Fork, Utah, called the Crescent School of Music. Housed in a tiny brick building, the school launched with a handful of private instructors and just over 50 private students.

Today, the Soundhouse is recognized nationally as the leading music performance training studio for musicians. Alumni from the award-winning program are highly sought-after by top-tier colleges across the country. Even more importantly, thousands of former Soundhouse musicians now lead successful careers in business, law, medicine, technology, and more.

The Soundhouse bands are comprised of serious musicians performing a wide variety of styles from soul to swing, rock to reggae, country to cool jazz, and funk to fusion. The program is built on a unique philosophy of empowerment, musicianship, and mentorship.

In 2017, Caleb partnered with music industry veterans Andrew Surmani (CEO) and Rick Drumm (COO) to begin a global expansion of the Soundhouse brand. Currently, the Soundhouse is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, with additional studios opening in Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, and Boston, MA, in 2018. The team plans the launch of 140 more locations globally in the next decade.
