Scott Moore

Faculty

Scott Moore enjoys a career as a teaching musician spanning four decades. He was chair of the Department of Music for six years and has taught courses in pedagogy, music history, music theory, music technology and popular music. He has performed over a thousand performances with top American orchestras, and hundreds of performances of touring Broadway musicals. 

Dr. Moore enjoys thinking and writing on topics of trombone pedagogy, musicianship, and mindset. The most important aspect for his students to learn is the joy of creating excellent work. While musicians are trained in the concepts of breathing, intonation, rhythm, sound, and phrasing that are familiar in most of the world's leading music schools, what comes as a surprise are the methods employed to inspire students to conquer self-doubt and other destructive thought habits.

Moore is the only bass trombonist to have studied at the Juilliard School's Professional Studies program and holds Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. Former teachers include Tony Chipurn, James E. Roberts, Arnold Jacobs, Don Harwood, Marie Speziale and Edward Treutel (a student of Herbert L. Clark). In addition to maintaining the trombone studio, he is the conductor of the Gustavus Trombone Choir.
