From PandoDaily – Since launching into private beta a year ago and landing the house band of “American Idol” as an early client, music practice and performance platform Chromatik has been punching above its weight class. The company continued this trend when it landed Grammy-winning artist Bruno Mars, Virgin Records co-chairman Jeff Ayeroff, and other music industry heavyweights as investors in its November 2012 seed round.

Matt Sandler is a professional musician and entrepreneur. He has extensively toured the West Coast, taught woodwinds in the Los Angeles Unified School District, and was recently a lecturer in music technology at UCLA. However, performing and teaching music was not always his gig — Matt’s held A&R and technology roles at KROQ 106.7FM and Capitol Records. And from there, he was on the early team of the social marketing startup CitizenNet, leading business development and sales. Blending his experiences in technology and education, Matt founded Chromatik to redefine how people practice, perform, and learn music. Matt holds a BA in Saxophone Performance from UCLA and was named a CA Distinguished Arts Scholar by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
