Abel graduated from The University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Arts - Extended Major in Music. He is currently completing the final year of his post-graduate degree at the Queensland University of Technology. He began playing the guitar at 11-years-old. He plays both electric and acoustic guitar, with particular interests in rock, pop, blues, punk and contemporary music styles. His interest in music was heavily influenced by his father, a fellow musician, who encouraged him to start his musical journey in the form of guitar lessons in his early teenage years. This has since grown into a passion, of not just playing music, but of teaching music too. This has influenced Abel's tertiary education and shaped his career goals to become a music teacher and inspire other young musicians.
