Harrison Baker was born in New York City 13 years ago. He spent the first 9 years of his life in Brooklyn where he started piano lessons at age 3. Harrison played recitals with his older brother at Steinway Hall across from Carnegie Hall in Manhattan. He also enjoyed playing a small cabaret piano for tips or “busking” on the street across from his local subway station in Brooklyn Heights. Harrison moved to Vancouver Washington at age 9 and currently studies piano performance with Nathan Hall at Vancouver’s Beacock Music School. Harrison is employed as the primary pianist at St. Mickael’s Church and is the substitute pianist at The United Methodist Church of Vancouver Heights.
