Simon Bjarning

In addition to being well-versed in all musical genres, Simon is a teacher. He believes in passing the craft of drumming on to the next generation--in passing on the tradition. He has taught young children as well as teenagers and adults who want to play drums and learn more about music.


Simon models his teaching after American methods and currently studies the techniques of Billy Gladstone, George Lawrence Stone and Sanford Moeller with Dom Famularo.


Simon is currently teaching and performing in New York State's Southern Tier
