We had the good fortune of connecting with Nick & Ashley Jensen and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nick & Ashley, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
Strum University is a place for both kids and adults to come and be part of a community of students who love music and want to create, perform and interact with other like minded musicians. Whether you’re a total beginner or you’ve been playing for years. we want our students to feel the connection that music brings when shared with others.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We help people learn to play the music they love and we’ve built a community where students can feel connected with other like-minded musicians. We’re much more than just music lessons. Music is an amazing gift to be able to share with others and we’re so blessed to be able to help mentor both kids and adults through their musical journeys.
We opened our doors in May of 2015. The first year was pretty tough, but we slowly began to grow and it’s been a slow and steady growth ever since. We’ve made many mistakes along the way, but we learn something at each juncture.
We’ve expanded our facilities twice since opening. We now have over 3500 square feet of music studio space to teach and perform.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our parents! We’ve had lots of help and support over the years as we launched our music school. Without our parents, we wouldn’t have had the success that we’ve had.
