Simon has worked for 20 years as a professional singer in musical theatre, jazz, and classical styles, and has taught throughout that time. He draws equally on acting techniques and physiologically based methods such as the work of Vocology, Jo Estill, and the Vocal Process.
Simon is also well-regarded as a musical theatre repertoire coach, with an extensive knowledge of the canon, and a knack for selecting music to challenge and showcase singers at audition and in performance. His acting background is invaluable in helping students towards committed performance led by story and character.
"Because of Simon's knowledge of the voice from an acting and singing perspective, I was able to replace old habits with healthy ones that centred around the character and proved to be more useful and repeatable in my technique. By letting me focus on what the character needed rather than how I sounded, Simon truly helped me implement how to sing with joy and ease." - Soprano Jessica Soza (Maria - West Side Story International Tour)
