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.

From these humble beginnings, today Caleb Chapman’s Soundhouse is recognized nationally as the leader in training for young musicians. Graduates from the award-winning program are highly sought-after by top-tier colleges and music schools across the country. Currently the Soundhouse consists of the headquartered Performance Centers in Salt Lake City, Utah, with centers opening in Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, and Boston, MA, with more centers opening in the US and around the world in upcoming years.

The Soundhouse bands are comprised of musicians ages 10-18 and span a wide variety of styles from soul to swing, rock to reggae, and funk to fusion. The program is built on a unique philosophy of empowerment, musicianship, powerful experiences, 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. New locations are slated to open in 2018: in Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, and Boston, MA and additional performance centers will be opening in the upcoming years in the US and globally.
