ATEMU ATON BIO
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 way 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/electric bass, voice, songwriting and hand drums privately and in groups. I have released CD’s and digital tracks of original compositions.

Had a great lesson and jam with Atemu. Right from the start I could tell that this was someone I would learn a lot from. He takes the time to understand your goals and then helps you achieve them - a great teacher!
My experience with Atemu at Mu-Sick Beats was very good. Atemu taught me vocal lessons and music theory, and I learned an incredible amount from him. He is extremely knowledgeable about music, and very professional, and packs every lesson with depth and insight. He has a way of knowing exactly where you are and delivering what you need... he really tunes in. I walked away from every lesson feeling inspired and excited to dig in even more. I highly recommend Atemu and Mu-Sick Beats Jam Studio as a great source of musical knowledge and inspiration.
I studied with Mr.Aton for two years in preparation for my Oakland
School for the Arts entrance audition. I have been playing flute for many years, but I felt I needed assistance with sight reading and my confidence. Mr.Aton really helped me improve my skills and it is thanks to him that I passed my audition.
Had a fun time and learned a lot, even on our first lesson. I already scheduled more lessons!
Couldn't be better!
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!
