Basho started BASHO & FRIENDS because he loves teaching, music, making videos, and working with people. Through multiple iterations and evolutions, BASHO & FRIENDS has continued to produce high quality musical content aimed at making learning less like a lesson and more like a dance party.
In addition to his many years of bilingual teaching experience, Basho also founded an arts based after school program in Oakland, CA., composed music for Sesame Street, collaborated on videos with Sesame Studios and Cool School, wrote and co-produced all BASHO & FRIENDS music, and currently serves as Partner at the nonprofit FuelEd - an organization that develops emotionally-intelligent educators who build relationship-driven schools.
Basho earned a Master in International Affairs from Columbia University and a BA and bilingual teaching credential from UC Santa Cruz. Rooted in his bilingual teaching experience, Basho brings a focus on simplicity, clarity, compassion, joy, and human connection to all of his work. He enjoys life in Boulder with his wife Amanda and three kids Golden, Skyler, and Primrose.
