Abi Austin is a local Community Music Group leader. She runs the Hipperholme Community Choir and the Ripponden, Stainland and Greetland Community Choir, as well as the Brighouse Beginner Ukulele Group and also music classes for babies and toddlers. It is her baby and toddler classes where her name, ‘Abi Ukulele’, came from! She has also been leading the Orange Box Choir.
Originally from Carlisle, she studied music at Huddersfield University and stayed mostly around the area, aside from a year spent teaching Kindergarten in Thailand. Abi loves to be involved in Community Music, making music fun and accessible for everyone!
Abi joined Curious Motion in November 2021 to work on our Rhythm & Brews sessions where she provides opportunities to sing, play the drums, and learn Makaton!
