About Our Outreach and Enrichment Programs

Founded in 1979, Swallow Hill Music teaches more than 4,000 students each year at our campus and provides music education programming to more than 12,000 students in the Denver Metro area and along the entire Front Range.

Schools, PTAs, and community organizations can all partner with Swallow Hill Music to bring music to students and communities. Our programs include School Assemblies, Field Trips, and In-School and After-School music lessons and workshops.

Many of the programs have been developed to combine music with the relevant Colorado Academic Standards so multiple education goals can be met within the same program. Please note that assemblies must be booked at least 3 weeks prior to event.

Financial assistance may be available, please inquire with Chris McGarry at chris@swallowhillmusic.org.
