About Jonathan

- What kind of experience do you have?

As an orchestral musician, I have played both professionally and as an amateur with orchestras such as Lancashire Sinfonietta, Welsh Concert Orchestra and Cardiff SInfonietta. As a soloist I have given short recitals and performed with the Lancashire Youth Symphony Orchestra. As a chamber musician I have performed for various events and concerts as leader of the Lancastrian Quartet and also with other chamber groups. I currently lead The Pendle Quartet.

As a composer, I was Young Composer in Residence in 2006 at Lancashire Sinfonietta after being awarded the Christopher Brooks Memorial Prize for composition.

I have taken part in many workshops and have tutored string sections of orchestras, including the 'Mzansi Cymru' project with Rhondda Cynon Taff intermediate and senior strings.

I have also been involved in teaching skills and workshop leadership courses at RWCMD.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with Marius Bedeschi, on a major scholarship.
I am currently studying a PgDip (Performance) course with Nick Whiting at RWCMD.
I have received composition tutoring from Timothy Redmond, Timothy Jackson and Peter Reynolds.
