His music education and passion for the saxophone began at the age of 13, when he joined the band in his secondary school. He was awarded his Licentiate Diploma of Trinity College London (LTCL) in Saxophone in 2007 with Distinction, and ABRSM Grade 7 Theory in 2008.

One of the most outstanding and prolific saxophonists in Singapore, Jefferson is a classical, pop and jazz performer and was a featured artist in the 2008 SG Band Fusion Online Interview. Jefferson has also participated in many local and international saxophone competitions.

His performing career started when he joined the Singapore Armed Forces Central Band in 2006 after graduating from Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

A virtuosic saxophonist, Jefferson was the Jazz Soloist during the SAF Big Band Concert “Get in Line” in 2008, and also played a saxophone concerto, Duex Movements, as a guest with the Nanyang Polytechnic Symphony Orchestra in 2012. Since then, Jefferson has performed solo with many groups including the “Lush Pop Orchestra” and the “Saxpress Saxophone Quartet” at many places such as the Esplanade and the NAFA Lee Foundation Theatre.
