Kia ora katou,

My name is Josiah Abbott – I am a music educator and freelance creative. I specialise in a number of music teaching areas, including guitar, composition/songwriting and the journey of creating music in pursuit of one’s musical voice.

I have taught secondary school music (Years 9 – NCEA Scholarship) for 5 years, over which time I collaboratively led various school co-curricular groups, including; Orchestra, Jazz Band, Production Bands, and Rockquest groups.

My current creative projects include the writing and production of a Modern Prog EP and Rock Opera.
