    Jonathan Bunney was born in Winchester in 1980 and started his musical education at the age of 12. Jonathan began his church music studies at St Mary's Church, Hayling Island, followed by three years as Hampshire County Council Organ Scholar at St Mary’s Church, Portsea, where he developed his church musicianship under the guidance of Nigel Stark. 

    During this time he was also a student at the St Giles International Organ School, based at the historic church of St Giles, Cripplegate, where he was taught by Anne Marsden-Thomas. In 2000 he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Music. During his time at the RCM his teacher was Margaret Phillips. Prizes awarded included the Kenneth Bruce Stuart Prize and Harold Darke Memorial Prize for Organ. In 2004 he graduated with a Bachelor of Music (Honours) degree and achieved his ARCO. 

    In the same year he was the Royal Hospital Church Music Scholar at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, before becoming Director of Music at St Giles-in-the-Fields in London’s West End. During his time at St Giles, Jonathan has developed and directed a successful Voluntary Choir of up to 22 members and established a series of lunchtime organ recitals on the newly refurbished William Drake organ. This is his first CD on this restored instrument.  He has also recently joined the teaching team at the St Giles International Organ School.

    You may recognise Jonathan from his television appearances on the game shows The Weakest Link and Deal or no Deal. Thanks to winnings from the latter show, Jonathan has been able to return to the RCM to study for a Masters in Music, which he started in September 2008. Other interests include Doctor Who, tennis and the British coastline.
