Drummer || Singer || Teacher || Producer || Composer


Chad "Chadzilla" Johnson has made a name for himself in Denver as many things: a drummer, vocalist, educator, studio owner/engineer/producer, and composer. For nearly 30 years, he has performed with a multitude of local, national, and international touring acts, recorded a number of albums of his own as well as those of his musical brethren, and improved the lives of future rockers with private and group lessons. He takes great pride in his work, whether it be behind a drum kit, helping others realize their full musical potential through his lessons, or making a band feel comfortable in his 25 BPM studio when recording their albums.


He has dedicated himself to helping students learn how to rock regardless of skill level or life challenges. He has spent many years working with students with special needs as well as volunteering for the Art for Life Program at Children's Hospital.


Chadzilla started and continues to run the House Of Rock program at Swallow Hill Music, can be found playing live on any given night at various venues throughout the front range area, and still finds time to continue to compose his own original music. 

Since 1992, Chadzilla has been teaching students of all ages and skill levels on multiple instruments in the Denver area and Front Range. Whether you're a beginner or you are looking to take your band to the next level, Chadzilla can provide you with professional tutelage that you'll carry throughout your musical career. Join the House of Rock Camps, hire him as your band's Rock Doctor, or pick his brain in a private lesson. 


25 BPM Studio offers all of the ammenities you would expect of a professional studio.  

Let Chadzilla produce, engineer, mix, and master your next album. Working with ProTools and a full pro-gear backline, we can get your project finished in no time flat. 
We also have live recording capabilites for demos or to use the recordings of lessons to further your discipline.
