Music

I’m a singer and songwriter specializing in music from South America. Please check out my musical website to hear some of my recordings:  www.markbaummusic.com.

Long ago I studied voice and composition at Oberlin Conservatory and then later at UCSB, where I also trained as an actor.

Over the years, I’ve studied with Dave Worm, Faith Winthrop, Rhiannon, Cecilia Engelhart, and Susan Rode Morris.

Now I’m learning the tiple, a Colombian 12-string guitar. I’ve been traveling once a year to study tiple with Oriol Caro and popular/folkloric vocal repertoire with Miguel Angel Urrea Mejia.

My goal is to record a CD in Colombia in 2019, and to find a way to live there for several years while making as much music as I can.
