House of Rock Summer Camp

Play in a band this summer!

About House of Rock

Swallow Hill Music’s House of Rock Summer Camp is now in its 10th year! At House of Rock, students ages 13 – 18 will get hands-on experience necessary to play in a band with other musicians.

In each week-long session, campers learn how to use their gear, play through a sound system, understand and read music charts, find and create a part in the band, song write, play with other musicians, performance techniques, and develop skills for managing a performance group.

Camps are open to guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, vocals, horns, strings and even banjo. If you have an instrument that is not listed give our front desk a call and find out if we can make your instrument work in a band setting!


During the camp, students get a booklet of songs, charts, worksheets and arrangements and will meet daily in 90 min classes to focus directly on their particular instrument and voice. These break-out classes are led by Swallow Hill Music instructors, who are also professional musicians!

Attendees get numerous opportunities each day to play and practice in duos, trios and in a full band setting. All ensemble and band work is taught and directed by the camp faculty.

Each week of camp ends with a Saturday performance  – complete with a full sound system, sound engineer, and lights.

Our Camp Director Chad “Chadzilla” Johnson and his Swallow Hill Music teaching faculty focus on getting to know the camp attendees, creating a supportive and positive experience while helping each student build up the right skills for success at their individual level.

If your child wants additional one-on-one help, individual private lessons are also available daily following camp. Please register with the front desk. Additional fees apply.
