Since graduating, Neil O’Hagan now currently works at The Harbour School, Hong Kong as a High School/Middle School Music Technology Teacher. Here, Neil teaches Music Tech classes to Middle School Students (Grade 6 GarageBand, Grades 7 & 8 Logic Pro X) and for High School students (Grades 9-12) he teaches two subjects: Music Production & Songwriting + Audio Composition & Post Production for Film & TV.
Neil says that since working at Harbour School, he has incorporated many of the skills that he learnt whilst studying at Abbey Road Institute. His High School students have written, recorded & produced their own tracks, as well as recreate and reimagine classic hits. They have also recreated the entire soundscape from selected clips of classic movies. As well as this, Neil uses his skills in sound engineering to set up the microphones and engineer the live sound for the school’s affluent Winter Concert.
Outside of work, Neil plays keys in a number of gigs for Hong Kong based Australian musician Glen Alfred, and has performed solo piano & guitar gigs, playing his own original material. He is also still in touch with ARI alumni Marko Mihaljević, and they have recorded several songs together.
