About Simon


Bio

I began my musical studies at the age of 11 on the saxophone and within six months was studying with the saxophone professor from St. Marys College. He was mainly a jazz saxophonist so that is when I was introduced to jazz. As a high-schooler I became the lead alto player in the College's Jazz band and combo and was a featured soloist. At the age of 13, I picked up the clarinet and have studied its classical literature. I have studied with Jan Murphy (clarinetist in the president's own marine...

I began my musical studies at the age of 11 on the saxophone and within six months was studying with the saxophone professor from St. Marys College. He was mainly a jazz saxophonist so that is when I was introduced to jazz. As a high-schooler I became the lead alto player in the College's Jazz band and combo and was a featured soloist. At the age of 13, I picked up the clarinet and have studied its classical literature. I have studied with Jan Murphy (clarinetist in the president's own marine band), and Dr. Bruce Curlette from Cedarville University. I also have studied the flute for a number of years.

In 2011 I stared my BM degree in saxophone performance at Cedarville University in OH receiving the highest Music scholarship and studied with sax professor, Chester Jenkins. While at Cedarville, I was the lead tenor in the jazz band, principal clarinet in the Symphonic Band and Orchestra, and became the Student associate jazz band director in my Junior year.

I am a perpetual student of music myself, learning new things constantly. I have been teaching private lessons for 5 years. My lessons have included, regular saxophone lessons, jazz improv lessons, and clarinet lessons. I have also tutored students in music theory. During my undergraduate degree, I took music theory and aural skills I-IV.

Please contact me if you are interested in any of the lessons that I offer. These include the following: Saxophone and Clarinet lessons, Improv lessons, and music theory lessons. If you are interested contact me. I look forward on taking this musical journey with you!
