AboutVeronica

After graduating from W. G. Enloe - Magnet High School (Raleigh, North Carolina) in 1985, Ms. Jackson studied violin at the University of Miami (Coral Gables) with Dr. Marla Meutschler (Paul Rolland protégé) and Dr. Earl Sanders at North Carolina Central University (NCCU). Graduating summa cum laude from NCCU in 1991, she began teaching orchestra in Wake County elementary, middle, and high schools in Raleigh, North Carolina. Ms. Jackson moved to Richmond in 1994 and began teaching in Henrico County Public Schools, where she worked for 17 years at several schools including Byrd Middle School, Godwin High School, Freeman High School, and Tucker High School. In Henrico County, she coordinated the Strings Discovery Program designed to introduce stringed instruments to rising 6th graders.

Ms. Jackson’s orchestras were known for outstanding

performances throughout the district. While teaching in

Henrico County, her high school orchestras performed

at the Virginia Music Educators’ State Convention in

Norfolk, VA. Her orchestras have also received superior

ratings in national competitions in Chicago, New York,

Toronto, and Boston. Ms. Jackson was a 2010 finalist

for the R. E. B. Award for Teaching Excellence. In July

2012, Ms. Jackson was selected to participate in the

Music Educators’ Conducting Workshop at The

Julliard School. This week-long program was for the

30 music educators from around the country who

were selected by their resume and video-audition.
