The people of tonebase
We're a passionate group of musicians, coders, and Lakers fans looking for awesome people to help us redefine online music education. If you're interested in joining us on this journey, take a look at our current open positions!
Abhi is the Technical Lead and a Co-founder at tonebase. You can find him in a hoodie, with his headphones turned on to country music and socked feet resting in some (incredibly comfortable) Nike sandals.
Chris, one of the guitar guys, is in charge of marketing and customer service which means he's watched every single lesson and has learned literally everything there is to know about the classical guitar. Too bad he has that long-term memory problem...
Igor does content strategy and artist relations at tonebase. When not lifting and exploring California's craft beer scene (which goes together quite well) Igor's a retired death metal player turned classical guitarist.
Head of Guitar
A native of Northern California, Erin manages Guitar Operations at tonebase. She is a classical guitarist who stumbled into early music during her Masters and has been happily strumming a baroque guitar ever since. When she isn’t working or playing guitar, you can usually find Erin playing board games or at a brewery (or playing board games at a brewery).
Head of Piano
Ben is the Head of Product, Piano at tonebase. When he’s not making movies with pianists, he’s trying to be one himself. In his leisure time, he enjoys experimenting with low forms of humor, long speculative conversations about the fate of human society, and watching the NBA.
Head of Production
As Head of Production, Sean handles video production and editing. He started learning about camera equipment because he wanted to take better pictures of his dogs. Now he oversees hundreds of hours of content creation every month, none of which is dog related.
Patrick is a software engineer with a strong passion for music. He discovered his passion for programming while attending Berklee College of Music, where he studied Electronic Production and Design and Music Business. Patrick is also an avid classical guitarist, cellist, pianist, and electronic musician. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, and drinking coffee.
Liz is the first product designer at tonebase. She is skilled in user research, copywriting, user experience design, and user testing. With over five years of experience working with users, she understands their importance to product development.
Philip specializes in post-production/ cinematography. Philip’s editing work is represented in social media, feature films and music videos. His focus is in social media marketing and campaign strategy development.
Peripheral Content Lead
A native of California’s Central Valley, Ethan is a Los Angeles-based musician and composer, primarily of jazz music, with a passion for improving access to high quality music education. While his life’s purpose is to make danceable, genre-busting music, he divides his time between developing peripheral content for tonebase, studying astrophysics, and figuring out what would happen to all of tonebase’s content were it to fall inside a black hole.
Legal & Partnerships
Jenny handles legal, financial and partnership matters at tonebase. She is the mother of an adorable but highly undisciplined husky. She usually takes too long of a lunch break because her dog needs a walk and also possibly a single packet of string cheese for his afternoon snacks. When she finally gets back to the office, she’s busy coordinating music licensing contracts and negotiating sponsorship deals.
Content Delivery Manager
Trevor is the Content Delivery Manager at tonebase. His passion is managing delivery content. Despite an extensive and expensive career in music, he spends most of his time listening to people talk on podcasts.
Head of Marketing
Jerry is the Head of Marketing at tonebase, focusing on creative campaigns and user acquisition.
He has a cat named Chadwick.
Head of Growth
Spencer loves building products and growing businesses. His primary focus for the last few years has been growth and customer acquisition. But he's a builder at heart, and cares about the entire product experience. Not just whether people will use/buy it, but also the core value it’s bringing to customers, how it works, and what it looks like.
Ex Front-End Developer
Rodrigo was a front-end developer at tonebase prior to pursuing several entrepreneurial ventures and his next adventure. He helped build many of the foundations of the platform and for that we are grateful.
Muito obrigado a todos, beijos e abraços!
