TEACHING / WORKSHOPS

ACCOMPANYING

ARRANGING

"Simona is a fantastic coach, with a real empathy for young singers who are in the beginning of their performance training and early careers. She is not afraid of being honest and direct, and has the ability to challenge without ever being confrontational. She’s also a great pianist and can play throughout a wide range of styles with aplomb. I can’t recommend her too warmly.
