Dr. Lindsay Davidson, B. Mus (Hons), Dip. Mus. Ed, PGCE, MA (Ed), PhD, brings twenty years of teaching experience to the Embassy International School. This experience covers all age groups within the school, from Nursery through to the final years and extends beyond into University lecturing and includes a variety of curriculum areas.
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. Before co-founding the Embassy International School Lindsay worked in a variety of roles including Classroom Teacher, Senior Teacher, IB DP Coordinator and Deputy Head as well as serving as University and Careers Advisor.
Lindsay studied in Edinburgh University and Napier University, in Scotland, gained his Primary school 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.
