… A major feature of Lindsay’s career has been teaching workshops internationally, on 4 continents in topics ranging from music to teaching. Lindsay has also taught for the Institute of Music Education at Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce.


Dr Davidson’s teaching philosophy is based upon a belief that we can all succeed at any time in life and from any starting position and is framed within the theory of Multiple Intelligences from Howard Gardner and growing research in the field of brain based learning. He has developed his own methodology of teaching musical instruments, with proven results, supported by research.


Lindsay’s leadership experience started from a young age with musical ensembles, leading to his own music school based in Edinburgh, and after moving to Poland in 2001 continued to develop through project management and consultancy. Lindsay spent ten years working in the British International School of Cracow, several of them as Senior Teacher, IB Coordinator and Deputy Head and there he oversaw the redevelopment of policies, creation and introduction of a pastoral care programme, quality control procedures, organisational streamlining, expansion and delivery of a new management structure as well as serving as University and Careers Advisor.


Lindsay studied in Edinburgh University and Napier University, in Scotland, gained his general teaching qualification from Sunderland University, England and his Master’s in Education (including educational leadership) from Bath University, also in England.


Lindsay has an active life as a practising musician, writer and a composer, with concerts in over 40 countries on 5 continents and works performed and published across the world. His website discusses this in more detail. He also works as a translator from Polish to English.
