Details

Digital education startup Chromatik has made a strong debut in Southern California with its unique approach to learning, practicing, and performing music. The innovative learning platform has removed the need for traditional sheet music and allows instructors and students to play, record, share, and interact with music from virtually anywhere. The company has been named one of Entrepreneur Magazine's "Top 100 Brilliant Companies of 2012," and, prior to the platform being released to the public, Chromatik formed a partnership with the popular show, American Idol.

Join Matt Sandler, co-founder and CEO of Chromatik, for an inside look at the technology behind the platform, how it's currently being used to effectively teach music, and a discussion about the broader implications of technology and arts education.
