Rachel Wood

Music Teacher, Tutor Co-ordinator

I  have been playing the violin and piano for around 20 years and have taught for nearly 10. I  have a huge passion for music and take great satisfaction in sharing this love with others and doing my best to inspire them along their musical pathways. I have taught in both inner city and rural schools, music summer courses and Westminster University in London tutoring violinists working towards their Bachelor of Commercial Music degree.

In my early years I was classically trained and fortunate enough to study at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester where I received a Bachelor of Music Performance with honours degree. Throughout this time I performed with many incredibly talented musicians, conductors, teachers and had the opportunity to play in chamber ensembles, symphony orchestras, opera orchestras, masterclasses and many more.

In more recent years and alternatively to this, I now work more in the popular music industry writing, recording and performing in the trio SISTER WOOD. In 2011 my band and I wrote and recorded two songs with famous violinist Nigel Kennedy on his album The Four Elements. Since then we have released our debut album and performed many shows both in Poland and the UK and in 2015 were nominated under the best new comer category at the prestigious Polish Fryderyk awards.

At The British School I have taught children of all ages right from year 1 all the way up to IB. I specialize in teaching the ABRSM syllabus in both violin and piano and can offer support with all aspects of the exam including accompaniment, aural training, sight-reading training and general exam preparation. Due to a wealth of knowledge and experience in both instrumental teaching and the ABRSM system I now manage the Instrumental Programme at The British School supporting tutors and working with the Head of Music organising all of the Instrumental Programme events. Since an overwhelming growth of violinists under my study I have also started to run a string ensemble after school. It is a fantastic opportunity for youngsters to play in an ensemble environment and most importantly have fun and meet new people who share similar interests and a love for music!
