Simon studied conducting (with Alan Hazeldine & Francis Shaw), piano (with Penny Stirling & John York), and French horn (with Jane Hanna) at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, and singing, privately (with Maureen Scott) in London.

His début, as the youngest assistant conductor in musical theatre, was at the age of 20 when he conducted the German premier production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mega musical, Sunset Blvd.

Simon made his classical début with The Scottish Pops Orchestra at the Glamis Prom (2018) conducting Holst, Barry, and Elgar.
