A passionate musician, dancer and pedagogue, Jerison received both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts (2016) in Dalcroze pedagogy from the Institut Jaques-Dalcroze, Geneva. To further develop his knowledge and skills in working with Dalcroze, he has travelled the world to study with various Dalcroze masters. While he was in Geneva, he also studied piano with renowned pianists Sergio de Los Cobos and Christine Guye. With a strong foundation in ballet and dance, he continued to study ballet and modern dance while in Geneva. The mastery in both music and dance furnishes him with a unique ability to truly deliver the essence of Dalcroze Eurhythmics. Since his return from Switzerland in 2015, Jerison has been actively promoting, conducting and teaching Dalcroze workshops and classes to musicians, dancers and arts educators in Singapore, and has taken up numerous invitations to present and teach in many Asian countries. His work has brought him to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Europe, America and Australia.
