His inputs range from workshop/recitals in classical Indian music, the exploration of Middle Eastern percussion via a more world music dynamic, through to exciting demonstrations involving live sampling and music technology.
Jon is sensitive to the leanings of the contemporary music student and also understands the requirements of the university system, having directed sizeable elements of taught modules, individually and with a sitarist.
He is 100% reliable and we always look forward to his various inputs.” Phil Hull, Head of Music, University of Plymouth, Devon.


Since September 2012, Jon has been a regular music teacher at Wynstones Steiner School in Gloucestershire. Jon teaches weekly Rhythm classes to the Upper & Middle school students & also works as a peripatetic tutor giving individual instrumental tuition.

“Jon Sterckx is a very professional and gifted teacher who has inspired our young people. He has helped them to transcend their rhythmic capabilities through engaging them in every lesson, creating an atmosphere of focus and enthusiasm. His students produce excellent work reflecting fine teaching”. Caroline Thompson, Head of Music, Wynstones School, Gloucestershire.
