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.

His work has brought him to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Europe, America and Australia.
