Tutor/Artist Profile – John Baker
This is how John sees his workshops unfolding. We can all create something out of nothing, and this is part of the mystery and discovery of songwriting. There are some songwriting tools that I use, and I’d like to share these with you, to help bring out your stories, emotions and states of mind. This will indeed be a collaborative experience for all of us.
I’ve been writing songs for over 30 years and touring internationally for the last 10 years with my band, The Baker Suite. I’ve collaborated with many people including recently Paul Grabowsky and William Shakespeare (although Shakespeare wasn’t aware of it).
Four days at Winter Break will be a great way to spend enough time to loosen things up, have fun, share ideas and see what comes up. Feel free to bring along any ideas, half-finished songs, dreams, an acorn of an idea – anything is fair game when we start to free-associate and let our imaginations take us where it will.
We are also most privileged this year to again have the amazing Dr Sound –
yes Michael Whiticker will be back not only to help polish your sound but also to share his enormous ranges of skills and talents.
Today Michael runs a spacious recording studio on a lovely farm in Peachester in the Glasshouse Mountains and also the Glasshouse Musos – a popular open mic session which (encourages original artists) and is held 4 times a month. His PA experience includes 15 years of weekly house gigs, concert halls and festivals. Along with PA and recording, today he occasionally performs (on a range of instruments, but mainly as a keyboardist), mentors performing artists, builds web sites and makes the occasional music video. In an earlier life he was a full time composer writing operas and orchestral pieces (for 15 years), spent 8 years in academia teaching composition, arranging and music technology, and directing festivals and a concert giving music organisation in North Queensland (6 years).
At Winterbreak Michael is very happy to assist people with their arrangements and writing skills, the technology they are using, their PA interests, their recording and/or video making.
