Simon Bjarning

 Drummer and Educator 


Simon is a world-class musician living in Corning, New York - a town located in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York State. His passions include drumming and teaching, as well as being a devoted husband, father and citizen of the world. He grew up in Denmark, studied at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen and embarked on a professional career in drum set and percussion. Now he lives in the United States and is continuing his career as a freelance musician and teacher in this country. 

Below check out this very special feature from Corning Museum Of Glass. It was an absolute honor to work alongside the great Nisha Bansil at the 2300˚ festival in 2017 at Corning Museum Of Glass and getting to perform my own compositions!
