    Atemu is a wonderful teacher. I am an absolute beginner and he is great at laying down the basics so I have a strong foundation to work from. I love his philosophy of always enjoying the process of practicing. Highly recommend!

About this pro

My teaching philosophy is clear and simple " Have Fun Learning and Teaching" ​ The first time I had the chance to meet five time Grammy award winning bassist Victor Wooten was at his camp outside of Nashville Tenn. I will never forget his love and joy of teaching music and life skills. One of the many things I learned that will always be a part of my approach to teaching music is how jamming or having a conversation with expert musicians is the most fundamental and important ways to learn how to develop your voice and technique on your instrument. My approach at Mu-sick Beats jam studio is designed to allow students the opportunity to jam and learn. "Making music can and should be as fun as learning to speak for the first time." ​ My areas of mastery include Jazz composition and performance, music theory, music production, Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, R&B and Reggae. While pursuing my education I had the opportunity to study with Victor Wooten, Dave Holland, Malachi Favors of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, John Lockwood and George Russell, creator of the Lydian Chromatic Concept of tonal harmonization. I have toured the world performing Jazz, R&B, Reggae and World Beat music with various bands, taught upright and electric bass privately, and have released CD’s and digital tracks of original compositions. I really enjoy watching my students grow in ways that they never would have realized they could. When they come to the lessons with questions about the work they have done.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Pricing for Jam studios are competitive and flexible depending on the situation and student. After having a conversation, I do my best to work with each student and their particular needs.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I began with a few questions ie.. What are you looking for? How long have you been playing etc.... Then we start jamming!! "Music should always be fun"
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am currently a music teacher for KIPP Bay Area Schools and have for the past twenty-four years been working as a Music Educator, Administrator, Jazz composer and performer. The last eleven of those years have been in the San Francisco Bay area at Oakland School for the Arts, teaching and leading large jazz ensembles, orchestra, small groups, recording studio techniques, African drum classes and music theory classes. I also have nine years experience teaching vocal music with Boston Public Schools.
