Scott Moore

Faculty

Associate Professor of Music in Music and 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 professional ensembles, including the Compass Rose Brass Ensemble and Minnesota Orchestra. Scott continues to perform for top artists and productions. Before moving to Minnesota he taught at Capital University, was bass trombonist of the Dayton Philharmonic, and regularly engaged by the Cincinnati Symphony. He can be heard on many recordings from the Symphony and the Cincinnati Pops.

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 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 the problems of the past.

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 maintaining the trombone studio, he is conductor of the Chapel Brass and teaches various courses in the department.
