Jonathan PikeCape Audio College
Head of Institution
His audio career began in the Hexagon Theatre at the University of KwaZulu Natal, Pietermaritzburg, where he worked as a lighting and sound engineer while completing his Bachelor of Arts degree. This experience ignited a passion for sound and lead him to move to Cape Town to study sound engineering formally at Cape Audio College. Coming from a family of educators, he jumped at the opportunity when he was offered employment at Cape Audio College in 2008 after completing his Diploma in Audio Engineering. Jonathan’s primary experience in the audio industry is as a studio recording engineer, and over the years has worked with many bands including Cape Town locals, The Rudimentals, and Caelo.
Jonathan has extensive experience as an educator, and in curriculum design and coordination, through over 10 years’ experience as Academic Head. He has furthered his qualifications through studies at the University of Cape Town, and has achieved a Masters Degree in Higher Education through research into the curricula at Cape Audio College. He has presented his research findings on curriculum design at the international Research in Engineering Education Symposium in 2019, and his research has been published through the conference proceedings.
