Sharon Jackson, Violin
The daughter of a voice professor, Sharon Jackson began her music training very early, studying piano at around age 3 and singing throughout her childhood. She began playing the violin when she was 10 years old. She later earned Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in violin performance from the University of Oklahoma where she studied with Michael Ma and Felicia Moye, both former students of the famed teacher Ivan Galamian.
Ms. Jackson is currently a sought-after Los Angeles freelance musician, performing live but also working in studios for film, television and records. In these capacities she has worked with the most prominent musicians of our time from Itzak Perlman, Leona Mitchell, Emmanual Ax and Joshua Bell to Stevie Wonder, Nellie Furtado, Ray Charles, Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow, Harry Connick Jr. and Lenny Kravitz. Soundtracks include Alvin and the Chipmunks and Spider-Man 3 and television appearances include The Tonight Show and American Idol.
In the past, Ms. Jackson has enjoyed teaching at Cameron University, Oklahoma Baptist University and the Oklahoma Arts Institute. Coaching violins for Los Angeles Youth Orchestra carries a special significance for her, being a product of youth orchestras herself.
