He received his undergraduate degree  in Music Education from the University of Georgia and completed his Masters of Instructional Technology Education degree from Lesley University.

He has taught orchestra at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in several systems in the metro Atlanta area before moving to Florence, SC area in 2005. He has taught in the Florence One School District for the past fifteen years.

Mr. Jackson also participates in several other music activities in the area.

I am excited about working with the students of Moore Middle School as they learn how to how to perform on the piano, guitar, or string orchestra instruments (violin, viola, cello, or bass).
