Jonathan Dreyfus - Composer

Jonathan Dreyfus was raised with music, born to George Dreyfus (renowned Australian film composer) and Kay Dreyfus (musicologist and pianist). His concerts with his dad performing film music live to picture gave him an intuitive feeling for the genre, and he has toured these shows around Australia and Europe.

In late 2008 Jonathan first composed film music for his friend’s student project. In what he can only describe as a freakish blur, he has subsequently written for dozens of ads, 2 TV shows and many awarded short films, and now Codgers, his first feature.

In 2009 he won an MADC Best Original Music Award, and in 2010 was nominated for the APRA/AGSC Best Television Theme award. Jonathan also composes for concert audiences, and has performed with about a dozen different bands on violin, guitar and/or vocals.
