Simone Weber, born in Luxembourg in 1985, discovered her love for the sound of the clarinet at age nine. After receiving a wide-ranging musical education at the conservatory in Luxembourg, she started her clarinet performance studies in 2004 at the Robert-Schumann-Musikhochschule in Düsseldorf. Thanks to a scholarship, she was able to attend graduate school at Miami University of Oxford, Ohio, and returned back to Germany in 2008, where she completed a Soloist Diploma at the Hochschule für Musik Saar in February 2014. Her main teachers include Johannes Gmeinder, Michèle Gingras and Kerstin Grötsch; masterclasses with François Benda, Eduard Brunner, James Campbell and Charles Neidich, amongst others, gave further vital incentives. Marcel Lallemang and Matthias Höfer supported her passion for the bass clarinet and its exciting repertoire; masterclasses concerned with the playing of period clarinets with Alan Hacker, Gilles Thomé as well the ensemble Clarimonia greatly influenced her playing.
