    Jaime Gibson

    I 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.

    Music Teacher, Tutor Co-ordinator

    Rachel Wood

    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.
