Simon Dechaene


Simon Dechaene, 18 years old, lives in Belgium (Europe), near Ghent. He has been playing the piano from the age of ten, being more attracted to the instrument every single day, which led to him being accepted to the Royal Conservatory in Ghent in 2014, where he currently studies for a Bachelor's Degree in pop & rock piano.

Simon creates his own music, teaches his instrument to beginning musicians, and occasionally performs solo as background musician at random parties, clubs, bars and restaurants. Ever since he started playing music, he's been writing little pop songs, but also bits and pieces of rock and jazz music. Even though it wasn't quite his 'style', he began experimenting with electronic genres as well, which has resulted in several collaborations with professional DJ's.

Hopping from band to band he's currently playing keys with rock & pop band Six & Sara, pop duo 'Chapony', & an occasional jazz trio, looking for his 'big chance', that'll finally get him started as a professional, recording musician.
