Garfield Jackson

Biography

Garfield Jackson was born in London into a family of jazz trumpet players with a wide-ranging appreciation of music.
At the age of seven, Garfield had violin lessons by Beryl Morreau, who had been a viola student of Lionel Tertis and a founder member of the McNaghten String Quartet. After just eighteen months of tuition, Garfield was accepted as a pupil at the Yehudi Menuhin School, where he stayed for nine years. Garfield then entered the Royal Academy of Music on a scholarship.
Away from the Endellions, Garfield has always endeavoured to play chamber music with other friends and colleagues, including Sandor Vegh, Steven Isserlis, Joshua Bell, as well as many others. As a soloist, Garfield has performed at Wigmore Hall and The Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, given broadcasts for the BBC and made several recordings.

Professor at MISQA for the following years
