Staff Profile: Miss K. Blackwood

Miss K. Blackwood

Music Teacher

Miss Blackwood has been a classroom music teacher in a Scottish secondary school for the past five years as well as working at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Junior School as a Musicianship teacher.

After studying for her BMus (Hons) at the University of Glasgow she then went on to achieve a MMus in Composition from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and completed her PGDE at the University of Strathclyde in 2011.

In my classroom I strive to ensure I create a positive, working environment where pupils feel safe, supported, challenged and valued. I have a huge enthusiasm for my subject and strive to encourage this in the young people I teach.

I am very excited to be coming to work at NAIS. I love teaching music and enjoy being able to share all the extra- curricular opportunities my subject has to offer. In my current school I run a variety of after-school clubs such as Junior and Senior School Bands and Soul Band, as well as organising various music events and concerts throughout the school year. I enjoy seeing the achievement young people can experience through performance and believe music is a great tool in helping to build confidence in other areas.

I enjoy contributing to whole school community and have led a number of whole school initiatives and events such as a recent IDL topic, Senior School Careers Events and a number of residential trips including three European ski trips.

In my spare time I enjoy playing flute and saxophone in various bands and ensembles. I also love travelling, sport and keeping active and I am very excited to explore Hong Kong and the surrounding areas.
