Simon Perčič je diplomiral iz pozavne na Akademiji za glasbo v Ljubljani ter se na priznani glasbeni ustanovi Scuola di musica di Fiesole (Italija) izpopolnjeval v dirigiranju pri finskem profesorju Jormi Panuli. Kot instrumentalist je sodeloval z orkestrom Slovenske filharmonije in Simfoničnim orkestrom RTV Slovenije ter se posvečal komornim zasedbam. Izpopolnjeval se je v razredu profesorja Marka Herona na RNCM Manchester, Danielea Gattija na Accademia Chigiana ter pri mojstrih Georgeu Pehlivanianu, Janu Coberju in Douglasu Bostocku. Sodelovanje z mnogimi orkestri na številnih mednarodnih festivalih ga je pripeljalo do nastopov v prestižnih koncertnih dvoranah po vsem svetu (Zlata dvorana Dunajskega glasbenega društva, Berlinska filharmonija).
Poleg velikih simfoničnih zasedb se posveča pihalnim orkestrom, godalnim sestavom, pa tudi različnim pihalnim in trobilno-tolkalnim sestavom. Njegov bogati repertoar se razteza od baroka preko klasike, pa vse do moderne. Še posebej rad dela z mladimi glasbeniki: z uspehi svojih učencev si je pridobil velik ugled in pogosto kot gostujoči dirigent ali član komisije sodeluje na dirigentskih tečajih in glasbenih tekmovanjih ter večkrat dirigira na tujih glasbenih ustanovah (Italija, Armenija, Madžarska, Avstrija, Poljska).
Je umetniški vodja projekta OrkesterkamP (poletna glasbena šola in festival) in projekta Svirél (mednarodno glasbeno tekmovanje in festival) ter od leta 2005 glasbeni vodja mednarodnega mladinskega simfoničnega orkestra Nova filharmonija.

Simon Perčič studied trombone at the Ljubljana Music Academy and Scuola di musica di Fiesole (Italy) where he studied conducting under the mentorship of distinguished Finnish professor Jorma Panula. Following a chamber music career and freelance work with Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and Radio Symphony Orchestra, he took conducting masterclasses at the RNCM in Manchester by professor Mark Heron and  Daniele Gatti, George Pehlivanian, Jan Cober and Douglas Bostock. He appeared at many renowned international festivals and performed in prestigious concert halls worldwide such as Musikverein in Vienna and Berlin Philharmonie.
Besides his engagement in conducting symphony orchestras, he dedicates himself in directing symphonic wind orchestra as well as brass, wind and percussion ensembles. His rich repertoire ranges from the Baroque music, throughout classical works, to the rarely performed works and contemporary music. He earned an esteemed reputation as a teacher and mentor to young musicians, whose achievements are of notable consideration, and is therefore often invited to be a guest professor at conducting courses or a jury member at national and international music competitions.
Simon Perčič is also the artistic director of OrkesterkamP (Summer Music School and Festival) and Svirél (International Competition and Festival) and music director of the International Youth Symphony Orchestra NOVA philharmonic since 2005.
