    Director of Music

    Haley Clark

    After growing up and going to the university in the United States, I moved to Brazil to work on my master’s degree in Salvador, a beautiful city on the ocean in the northeast. In 2009, I moved to São Paulo to teach music at St. Francis College, an international IB school, and became the Music Coordinator there. In 2011, I began a doctoral program in International Education Administration and Policy at the University of Minnesota. I have always wanted to come back and live in Asia again; I studied abroad in Thailand for a semester and visited other nearby countries including China in 2002. So when the opportunity arose, I joined the BSB team as Director of Music in 2015.

    Music Teacher

    Conrado Maia

    I grew up in Brazil in a very musical environment. My parents played an important role during my childhood and introduced me to a variety of musical genres and styles, from Brazilian folk songs to Beatles. I had my moments playing football when I was a child, but when I turned twelve I switched the ball for a pair of drumsticks - it was love at the first sight! Drums initially and percussion later on became my hobbies. When I had to make up my mind about what career would suit me, music was a natural choice.

    I have a Bachelor of Music degree and have been performing and teaching music for nearly twenty years. My career as a professional musician is closely intertwined with my career as a music teacher. Both had a role in deepening my understanding of music and have given me the opportunity to pass on what I love to my students.

    I joined the Music Department at the British School of Beijing in 2017 and am very excited to be part of this great team!

    Head of Drama

    Jonathon Freeman

    I have completed my Masters in Theatre at the University of Amsterdam and recently, I taught MYP and DP Drama/Theatre in Japan.  I trained as actor  (many many moons past) in Sydney, before moving into teaching Theatre and Drama for high school, as a way of keeping close to the one thing in life that brings me the most happiness. I do however continue to maintain a certain level of communion with my craft as a perfomer - for the sake of my own sanity and well-being, but also with my teaching practice in mind.

I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa in 2001. Later, in 2003, I completed a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from the same University. I began teaching during my postgraduate studies and realised this was a passion I could pursue.  In 2006 I completed my PGCE through the University of South Africa (UNISA).
