Jonna was born and raised in England. At school she had a wonderful violin teacher who had studied with Otkar Sevcik, followed by another great teacher, Isolde Menges, a former student of Leopold Auer, at the Royal College of Music. After arriving in NZ, playing chamber music, itinerant and private teaching, started in earnest. In 1980, Jonna moved to Auckland and attended Teachers Training College, followed by a full-time itinerant teaching job and fifteen years playing in the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. From 1996 to 2018, Jonna taught at the Music Education Centre, Glenfield, and during that time, was fortunate to be able to take a group of musicians to New Caledonia annually for ten years, doing choral and chamber music concerts.
