Simone Hug, Strings Adjudicator
Simone Hug was born in December 1979 in a small town in East Germany. She started playing the violin just before she turned 8. At the age of 11 Simone was invited to attend the “Musikgymnasium Schloss Belvedere”/” Franz Liszt” Music Conservatory in Weimar, where she spend the next 13 years of her life. During that time Simone followed the path of an orchestra and singer/songwriter career and enjoyed participating in numerous concerts & competitions in many different places around the world.
Smithers became Simone’s new home in 2004, where she lives and works as a homeopath and a violin teacher.
Simone teaches intuitively according to each being’s unique way of learning and believes in music as a gift to share with the world in an uncompetitive way.
