About Blake

I've always had the entrepreneurial streak, with early founding credits for starting (literally) the lemonade stand at age 7; then chess clubs in high school, and then bands and an online music collaboration startup in college. I briefly worked as a consultant for the Wharton Small Business Development Center, but then came back to doing my own thing. After graduating from Wharton, I worked for myself as a musician, (playing in bands, doing mixing and producing, etc.) and a teacher. I got too busy teaching myself, so I started my own music lessons company, LessonUp. I hired other teachers and within a year we were named Favorite Place to Learn Music by Austin Family Magazine (2012). But I saw numerous ways to improve music education, which has led me to my current endeavors, which includes co-inventing a new music notation system (already seeing over 20k downloads), and building out an iPad app to replace and enhance music books.
