Simon began his playing through the Salvation Army at the age of 7 at the Hull East Corps and also Scarborough Citadel and has been part of the North East brass banding scene for many years, performing at the Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. Simon was the Principal Euphonium with the Cottingham Band in East Yorkshire and moved to Euphonium with the Barton Town Band after Cottingham Band folded in 2009.

Simon began conducting whilst with the Cottingham Band as he mentored the Junior Band. 
After having sometime out of playing Simon was asked to come along and help out with DSB after a good friend Jim Johnson left the band.

Simon joined us in January 2015 on Euphonium.

He was appointed Solo Euphonium in January 2016.

April 2017 was a big change for the band and especially for Simon who took over the reigns and was appointed Musical Director.
