Simone was born in December 1979 in a small town in East Germany. She started playing the violin just before she turned 8. At the age of 11, Simone was invited to attend the music conservatory “Schloss Belvedere”/ “Franz Liszt” Musikhochschule, where she spent 13 years immersed in classical music studies. Following the path of an orchestra violinist and singer/songwriter career, she played in various symphony orchestras and successfully participated in numerous concerts & competitions all over the world.
In 2003, a temporary medical condition forced her to interrupt her studies, which led Simone to learn more about homeopathic medicine & care. Smithers, BC became Simone’s new home in 2004, where she since lives with her husband & their two daughters and offers holistic music lessons. Specializing in classical violin, she also loves to teach other instruments, including the piano, viola, voice, cello and early childhood music.
Simone has had the opportunity to perform in various concerts throughout the Bulkley Valley, enjoying the great musicianship & support amongst colleagues and friends.
