It’s time to take a peek into the life of one of our own. 

Today we are proud to highlight Patrick Moore.  Since his graduation in 2009, Mr. Moore has accomplished a great deal.  After receiving his undergraduate in music at the U of A, Mr. Moore went on to Texas Tech University to complete his Masters in Percussion Performance.  He has gained endorsements with several percussion companies including, Vic Firth Artist and Vic Firth Educational Team, Marching Percussion Specialist Team (MPS), Majestic Marimba Artist, and Mapex Drums.  Mr. Moore is now the Director of Bands and Instrumental Ensembles as well as Department Chair at Eastern Oklahoma State College.

Mr. Moore has also published 4 pieces for percussion with Alfred Publishing Co. :
Dreaming with a Broken Heart – Steel Band
Separate Ways – Percussion Ensemble
Any Way You Want It – Steel Drum
Europa – Steel Drum

We are so excited to see our graduates succeed in such exemplary ways!  Let’s all give a big Woo Pig Sooie for Patrick Moore!
