For the last thirteen years, Simon has been the horn player at The Lion King in London, and he also maintains a freelance career working with all the major orchestras as well as contemporary musicians.
Simon studied at the Guildhall School of Music. After leaving college, he worked with all the major orchestras in the UK and also discovered a love for playing in the West End. He was a member of the orchestra of Welsh National Opera for five years, but has always maintained a freelance career, and has developed a reputation for being a player of all styles of music.
Since this summer, after enjoying a glorious week teaching on the Brass academy course, he went straight to play in the London Symphony Orchestra prom, followed by a tour of Italy with London Brass. In the late summer of 2012 he went on tour with George Michael in the UK followed by a month in Australia.
