The Simon Latarche quartet performs at jazz clubs throughout the South West and Simon is also known for his versatility in providing personal music packages for the perfect wedding, private or corporate event.

As an Associate of the Royal College of Music, with over thirty years of teaching experience, including GCSE and A level, Simon is able to offer piano tuition up to grade VIII standard along with workshops and jazz tuition to groups and individuals of any age. This can take the form of a ‘stand-alone’ event or form part of a package including a concert/performance.
