With more than 15 years of experience in the education sector, Simone teaches a wide range of music production topics involving composition, sound design, synthesis, mixing, and techniques for A/V performance. He has worked at higher education institutions including London South Bank University, De Montfort University and Carlo Bo University of Urbino.
