Coming late to music, Jackson Maberry began piano lessons at 17 and fell in love with the world of sound. The following year he began studies in Chemistry at Whitman College, only to declare a Music major at the end of his first semester. From that point forward, Jackson dedicated himself exclusively to honing his craft as a theorist, composer, musicologist, and conductor, graduating with honors in 2011. In 2012 he received his masters degree in choral conducting from the University of Cambridge, where he studied under Stephen Layton, Christopher Robinson, Tim Brown, and Geoffrey Webber, and led the chapel choirs of Kings, St. Johns, Selwyn, Caius, Jesus, and Trinity Colleges.
Jackson also conducts the Walla Walla Choral Society and continues his research into the life and music of Swedish composer Elfrida Andree.
