Although Jonathan Wikeley
was photographed playing the piano aged just one, he
only started having lessons aged nine, when his
hands were large enough to stretch an octave.
Having studied both piano and violin during his
schooldays at Liverpool College
, from 1997 he
read music at Emmanuel College, Cambridge
, where he
also took harpsichord lessons with Virginia Pleasants.
spent a year as a choral scholar at Truro Cathedral
, before coming up to Exeter College
, Oxford, where he
studied under Reinhard Strohm, although he
spent most of his
time singing in and directing many choirs.
It was during this time that he
rather misguidedly agreed to play the organ for a friend's wedding, reignited a love for the instrument, and became director of music at St Peter's, Wolvercote.
In 2004 Jonathan moved to London, where he became organ scholar and then director of music at St Mary's, Battersea.
