Jerison Harper LEE, BA (HEM), MA (HEM)
A passionate musician, dancer, pedagogue, Jerison has set his sight on making music accessible to a diverse audience and using music to better one’s life. For this life mission, he has chosen Dalcroze Eurhythmics and its approach to facilitate his work.
Jerison received both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts (2016) in Dalcroze pedagogy from 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. With his strong foundation in ballet and dance, he continued to study ballet and modern dance while in Geneva. The combination of 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 been repeatedly invited to present and teach in many Asian countries. His work has brought him to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, Vietnam, Europe, America and Australia.
Apart from music pedagogy, Jerison is also skilled in the application of Eurhythmics to assist in strengthening posture, balance, mental alertness, focus coordination and various life skills. Beneficiaries of such practices are elderlies and stroke patients, as well as any who find themselves with declining facilities.
Jerison speaks 8 languages and plays piano, harp, clarinet, recorder and liu-qin.
