Overview (cy)

Ymunodd John Cunningham ag Ysgol Cerddoriaeth Bangor fis Medi 2011. Bu'n astudio cerddoriaeth yng Ngholeg Prifysgol Dulyn (BMus, 2000), ac yno y cwblhaodd radd MA mewn cerddoleg (2001). Yn 2007 cafodd PhD gan Brifysgol Leeds (o dan oruchwyliaeth yr Athro Peter Holman), am draethawd ymchwil ynghylch y cyfansoddwr modern cynnar o Sais, William Lawes. Bu John yn dysgu amryw o bynciau yn UCD ac yn Ysgol Gerdd a Drama Sefydliad Technoleg Dulyn, a bu'n dal swyddi ymchwil ym Mhrifysgol Limerick, Prifysgol Leeds, ac yng Ngholeg Prifysgol Dulyn (lle bu'n gymrawd ôl-ddoethurol i Gyngor Ymchwil Iwerddon dros y Dyniaethau a'r Gwyddorau Cymdeithasol yn 2008-2009). Mae John yn Uwch Gymrawd o'r Academi Addysg Uwch, ac yn aelod o Bwyllgor Cymdeithas Purcell. 

Mae ymchwil John yn canolbwyntio'n bennaf ar gerddoriaeth seciwlar ym Mhrydain ac Iwerddon, c.1600–1870. Ymhlith ei brojectau presennol mae monograff ar y cyfansoddwr Charles Dibdin, yn ogystal â nifer o brojectau sy'n ymwneud ag argraffiadau, gan gynnwys cyfrol o gerddoriaeth gonsort Matthew Locke (gyda Dr Silas Wollston) i'r gyfres Musica Britannica. Cyhoeddwyd ei argraffiad, gyda'r Athro Peter Holman, o Restoration Music for Three Violins and Bass, Musica Britannica 103 yn ddiweddar (2018).  

Bu John yn Gyfarwyddwr Addysgu a Dysgu yn yr hen Ysgol Gerddoriaeth (2012-17). Mae bellach yn Gyfarwyddwr Ymchwil yn yr Ysgol Cerddoriaeth a'r Cyfryngau.
