Simeon was nominated by his the Access and Music Centre Manager of Bristol Plays Music for his outstanding achievement in Classical and Jazz. They said that 'Simeon has developed his musicality not only in clarinet, but also achieving high standards in voice performance (at diploma level), which has been recognised through his acceptance of the prestigious Guild of Guardians City Waits award for 2019/20. 

'His exceptional talent was recently showcased in BPM events such as the Summer Sing (where he performed to over a thousand children and families) and more recently in winter performances at Bristol Cathedral and St George’s Bristol. In clarinet lessons with David Dodd, Simeon always works hard and has shown a high level of commitment and a willingness to learn and develop as a clarinettist and musician. As a clarinettist, Simeon has been a dedicated member of Bristol Youth Orchestra in addition to maintaining a relationship with his school’s music department, through performance and mentoring opportunities.'

How has participating in an Classical and Jazz qualification with Trinity College London impacted your artistic skills or career development?

My Trinity arts qualification has enabled me to run workshops in singing and participate in orchestras and private concerts. Learning an instrument has provided me with opportunities within the arts to advance in both music and theatre.

What's next?

I am currently progressing for my diploma in clarinet whilst auditioning for acting and acting musical courses. My career aim is to act and keep taking the opportunities given to me within this field whilst also holding onto the skills in music I’ve been brought up learning. 

Have you got any advice for other young people working towards an Trinity College London qualification?

Practice is key and you have to go out and find things you can do to better yourself and work for them because no matter how much talent or privilege you have nothing is given to you on a plate.
