He has been featured as a Guest Artist at the Texas State International Piano Festival and Brevard Summer Music Festival.

His solo recitals and concerto performances have been recorded and broadcasted by Radio New Zealand, World TV, and WSMC-FM.

Jonathan completed a Master of Music Degree and Bachelor of Music (Honours) Degree with First Class at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. In 2009, he received an invitation to study in the USA to complete a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree, Master of Arts in Theory Pedagogy Degree, and Master of Music Degree at the Eastman School of Music. His academic mentors include Barry Snyder, Rae de Lisle, Read Gainsford, Douglas Humpherys, Thomas Schumacher, Steven Laitz, Elizabeth Marvin, Katherine Ciesinski, David Temperley, and Matthew Brown.

Jonathan has a passion for collecting rare historical music recordings of the early twentieth century. He is now combining this passion with his academic interest: music theory and music analysis. Jonathan’s current research is on tempo rubato—an in depth comparative study between nineteenth- and twentieth century pianists’ interpretations. His thesis, titled “Structural Hearing of Rubato,” is a pedagogical study of tempo fluctuation in music performance, focusing on motives, counterpoint, and harmonization. Jonathan has presented his theoretical work at the MTNA and College Music Society conferences.
