In Miami, Simon attended the prestigious New World School of the Arts and Coral Reef Senior High School, where he participated in the prestigious Essentially Ellington competition, performing at Jazz at Lincoln Center for Wynton Marsalis. Simon also participated in the Litchfield and Centrum summer jazz workshops, where he learned under the tutelage of jazz greats such as Bob Mintzer, Gary Smulyan, and Matt Wilson. After high school, he was accepted on a scholarship to the Manhattan School of Music’s jazz performance program. In his short time in New York City, he has already studied and performed with notable players on the scene such as Matt Wilson, Marcus Strickland, Valery Ponomarev, Alexander Claffy, and Abraham Burton. Recent performance highlights include a set of all original music with his trio featuring the world-renowned drummer Matt Wilson, at the Giant Step Arts Central Park Concert series, this past Summer. Simon aims to fuse a deep study of saxophone greats such as John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, and Joe Henderson with the rhythms, harmony, and textures of modern black music, including genres such as Hip Hop and R&B.
