Jonathon Wheatley has taught from kindergarten and prep through to grade 6 in Australian primary schools for 20 years.  Prior to teaching, Jonathon worked as a professional musician.

Jonathon quickly realised the power of music, rhythm, dance and singing to engage children with their learning.

He collaborated with his wife Louise to develop an Authorised Performance for Schools.  This show used their own musical compositions to teach 7-12 year old students curriculum content in a musical setting called Jonny Jupiter Time Traveller.

Working as a reviewer for the Australian Literacy Educators' Association led to Jonathon's article, Teaching Poetry as an Art Form, being published in the book Tadpoles in the Torrens.

As Jonathon's interest in early language development grew, he created FUN Key Phonics, a concept which uses letter sound combinations to create rhythms and drum beats to help students learn to read.  Jonathon has incorporated FUN Key Phonics, nursery rhymes, singing, counting, dance and role play into a new show for 2-7 year old children called Jonny Jupiter and the Suitcase of Imagination.

Jonathon and Louise Wheatley work together as Wheatley Street Productions, specialising in composing, recording and producing music of all styles and filming and editing video productions for a range of clients.  

Jonathon maintains full teacher registration status with Queensland College of Teachers.  He is a full writer/member of the Australian Performing Rights Association and Australian Literacy Educators' Association.
