About Me - My Biography
Dr Katy Abbott is forensically curious about what makes us tick. Katy is a nationally recognised Australian composer who gives voice to those without a voice. Her music explores our passions, fears and motivations using contemporary musical flavours in traditional musical settings. Musing on the concepts of connection, place and humour, Abbott’s compositions are performed, published and recorded around the world. With 5 solo albums and a potful of awards and prizes, she is also a sought after educator, mentor and coach.
My expertise is in being able to capture the essence of something – to gently bring to the surface the things we feel and know but do not consciously acknowledge. I do this in my music composing work but I also do this through Dinner For Breakfast in online courses, mentoring, teaching and coaching; helping students and clients get underneath people-pleasing, traumatic decision making to capture the essence of their inklings and yearning to create business or creative practices that deeply match ‘them’. Helping women have their own voice so they can help others’ use their voice. And so on.
I also have a flourishing composing practice where my work is internationally recognised as giving voice to those that do not have one in my Hidden Thoughts(TM) series.
