    Year 8 Tutor, Head of Music Department, Teacher of Music

    Jaime Gibson

    studied my Bachelor of Music in Sydney focusing on performance on the Saxophone and Clarinet and Music Technology. I became passionate about Wind Orchestra and studied conducting with Symphony Australia and under many American professors through the Australian Band and Orchestra Directors Association which led me to studying in Los Angeles and New York.

    I love to perform and when I moved to London to teach I also joined the BBC Elstree Wind Orchestra on Clarinet and performed in a range of Blues and Pop bands. I became a Teacher Ambassador for the Royal College of Music while working in London which was a great honour. I really appreciate the musical history of Europe and decided to base myself in Warsaw to be closer to the birthplace of so many of the great composers such as Frédéric Chopin. The relationship with Juilliard was a big factor in choosing to work at BSW and I’m excited about the upcoming projects.

    Liliana Schmidt

    I studied modern languages (English and French) at the university in Lima, Peru. When I went to Frankfurt, Germany I began to study German and I studied Commercial correspondence in German and Spanish. I enjoyed working at international fair in Frankfurt because I had the opportunity to get into contact with different people and I could practice my languages.

    I started to teach Spanish and I realized that teaching would be more satisfying. I gained my experience working at different institutions and a commercial school in Frankfurt. When my husband was given the opportunity to work in Warsaw I decided to come with him. There I decided to participate in the Framingham educational program in Warsaw and I got a master education degree.
