Scott Moore

Faculty

Chair, Department of Music in Music and Assistant Professor of Trombone in Music - Instrumental

Scott Moore maintains an active career not only as the chair of Gustavus' Department of Music, but also as a teacher, soloist and orchestral musician. His performance career includes hundreds of performances with many professional ensembles, including the Minnesota Orchestra, and was acting bass trombonist for their 100th Anniversary season. Scott continues to perform for many of the world's top artists and productions, even as he works with his colleagues to move the department into the future. Examples include the 2006, 2008 and 2010 tours of Wicked and the recent musical hit, Shrek. Before moving to Minnesota he was regularly engaged by the Cincinnati Symphony, and can be heard on many recordings from the Symphony and the Cincinnati Pops.

As a teacher Dr. Moore is well known for his ideas and writings concerning ease of playing and musicianship. The most important aspect for his students to learn is the simplicity of making music. 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 unusual methods employed to free aspiring musicians from past problems.

Recently his attention has turned to the admissions, assessment, and advancement missions of the college. Improving the future for music education has become a real passion for him in recent years, as the obvious importance of this program to the values and sophistication of the next generation cannot be overstated.

Moore 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 his duties as chair, he is conductor of the Brass Choir and Chapel Brass. Dr. Moore has also taught courses in music history, music theory, popular music and a first-term seminar.
