Alexander Baker

Highly creative music professional and educator

Have been doing music since the age of five. Began going to a music school at age eight for drums and percussion for three years, then began studying classical guitar. At age 13, bought first electric guitar and learnt everything I could until I could play just about anything. Played in a few bands doing rock music, and kept up skills as a drummer and percussionist. Went to UCT straight after school and received a diploma in Classical Guitar performance, after that got my diploma for Audio engineering at Cape Audio College. Since then, I have composed and performed many of my own compositions, played classical guitar gigs, worked with singers and had them sing my songs, and currently have a collection of around 50 compositions, some instrumental, some for solo performance, some with lyrics and vocal lines that have all been written by myself as I am also a poet, philosopher and lyricist.

In regards to education, I began teaching at age 19 at a private school and have been teaching ever since. I use computer software to convey all my ideas to students in the form of exercises, riffs, scales and pieces. If there is a piece of music a student wants to learn, I will either find it somewhere and then edit it until it is made perfect. If I can't find the music anywhere I can always just work it out by ear. Currently I teach at a school as well as privately, and am always on the lookout for new and exciting things to do.
