Our Story

So you tried that awkward 1 on 1 lesson or a YouTube tutorial and found yourself getting nowhere?

Welcome to the first ever official Happy Hour Guitar class that we call Strum & Sip™! The idea started when my friend John and I were playing guitar and sipping on some tequila. We thought to ourselves, wow this is great! Learn how to play guitar while sipping your favorite drink! We later decided to get a few friends together and so back in January 2011, Strum & Sip™ was born. We currently offer 12 levels of instruction from beginner to advanced, along with dozens of elective classes. If you've never played guitar before or you're looking to improve your current guitar skills, we have just the class for you!

At Strum & Sip we focus on giving you the tools to make music on your guitar in just 1 or 2 lessons. In our opinion, if you're not making music and having fun then what's the point?? Along the way we'll teach you the methods and basic techniques that will have you enjoying your guitar for years to come!

Christopher J Bloom - Founder/Owner/Instructor

Chris has been playing guitar for over 30 years and has spent 20 of those years teaching students just like you. With countless concerts and tours under his belt he's taken music to the world in many forms. His music production studio Bloom's Room is located in downtown Denver, where he spends the majority of his time writing,  producing and mixing songs.

If you're looking for a musician who's passionate about his music and teaching students like yourself, look no further!!

Chris states, "I've spent over 20 years teaching all types of students, ranging in age from 5-75. Through that time, I've discovered many of the things that help students propel quickly and the long list of things that simply don't work. I've taken all my experience teaching through the years and implemented them into a 12 level (48 week) series that will change your guitar playing forever!  Even better, you'll have the time of your life and meet and network with dozens of friends along the way!"
