Simone Langiu is a London based freelance drummer.
The beginning of his music career dates back to when he played in his first live show when he was 9 years old (in 2005); on this occasion, Simone had the pleasure to play percussions with his father’s band.

In 2016 Simone decided to devote himself to the study of music in a professional way and made a new significant step: he enrolled in the BMUS Popular Music Performance course at the music university “The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance” (ICMP) in London. He has been coached by eminent professors such as Gabor Dornyei, Darren Ashford, Richard Spaven, Ferguson Gerrard, Audrey Riley, Xantoné Blacq and Jon Harris.
Simone has also gained experience playing in different studios. Some of the most prominent studios he played in are: “dBs Music Studios” in Berlin, the iconic “Abbey Road Studios” in London and "Dean St. Studios" in heart of Soho in London.
