About Dan Baker Music
A lifetime of music & recording
Dan Baker Music provides an extensive range of music creation, recording and performance services. But how did it all start?
Dan Baker started music with the violin at primary school, along with some singing lessons, and piano lessons a few years later. He took up bass and guitar at 16, and developed a keen interest in other string instruments and recording techniques.
Dan studied electro-acoustic music and electronic engineering at Keele University, and started his working life with EMI at their studios at Townhouse, Goldhawk Road, London in 1995. Dan played with several bands in London during his two years with EMI, before moving to Birmingham to work as technical manager at DEP studios, the home of UB40, completing their studio re-fit.
Is to go beyond standard remit of a music composition and sound recording and to become a creative professional where artists, bands, songwriters, musicians and producers can realize their music potential.

Music Production – Recording & Composition
With a a degree in electro-acoustic music and electronic engineering Dan’s mobile and fixed studios offer music recording and production services for professional and amateur musicians, singers and community projects.
We have the most up-to-date equipment and specialise in remote or group and community based projects. You can book by the hour or we can work out a price for a whole day. We encourage all professional and amateur music lovers and composers to get in touch
From arrangements to song writing we can help you createthe song and instrumentation needed for a great track.
If you have a song written (maybe on solo guitar or piano) and wish to complete it using actual instruments (these are of course far more preferable to generic MIDI sounds), I can work closely with you to produce the final product, recording, mixing and mastering it to your specification, with optional musical input whenever you require. This provides a cost-effective solution to your musical needs. I play all the instruments you find on this website, though the drums are programmed using the large array of acoustic drum sounds available. A real drummer is available, and I work with a number of drummers, all of whom can work closely to your musical theme.
