Learning music can be overwhelming — that’s why we developed the Chromawheel Music Compass to help you navigate music using your eyes & ears. So far we’ve developed a webapp, a free pocket guide, an instrument, and a book (coming soon).
Soapbox Music is a small company run by two musicians, each with teaching, composing and performing experience. Our goal is to make ambitious, durable, aesthetically pleasing and fun products for music education and creation.
Brendan Finucane (left) is a cellist, music educator, and music entrepreneur specializing in the integration of technology and the musical arts. An experienced teacher, he currently directs junior high and high school orchestras and teaches elementary school general music at the Chicago Waldorf School, and maintains a private teaching studio in Edgewater of cellists ages 5 – adult.
Farsheed Hamidi-Toosi (right) is a musician, designer, and engineer interested in empowering musicians through creative technology and self-education. He studied electrical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and has over a decade of experience helping organizations design and develop solutions built upon open source technology. In addition to his design & development work, he continues to record and produce independent albums at his music studio in Chicago.
Longtime friends and collaborators, Brendan and Farsheed play in a band called Black Tie Elephant and also started an innovative music recording studio cooperative in Chicago called Soapbox Music, which has been in continuous operation since 2010.
