Tim Moore - Director of Vocal Studies

Mr. Timothy Moore joined the Florida College Fine Arts' faculty in 1998, bringing with him an impressive resume. As an undergraudate he attended Westerminster Choir College, where he studied Music Education and Choral Conducting under Joseph Flummerfelt.  While at Westminster, Mr. Moore directed his first musical and his first opera and began a life long love of directing. Upon graduation he was accepted to Indiana University’s Master’s program in “Opera and Musical Theater Stage Direction” where he was involved in fourteen major productions. Straight out of Indiana University he was hired as the General Manager and Artistic Director of a summer stock theater in northern Indiana, where he produced and/or directed twelve shows in two summers. This was also the time that he made his professional debut at Cincinnati Opera, staging “La Boheme” and “Cosi fan Tutte”. Upon moving back to Florida, he began teaching private voice and was also the choral director in various high schools, eventually spending ten years at the Pinellas County Center for the Arts High School. All this time, he  also directed shows around the bay area, including the St. Pete Little Theater, the old St. Petersburg Opera Company, and the Francis Wilson Playhouse, among others.

As a voice teacher for over 35 years and a member of NATS (The National Association of Teachers of Singing) for over 25 years, his students have won numerous awards and competitions with many having professional singing careers.  From an American Idol semi-finalist to opera performers around the world, more than 125 of his students have taken first, second or third place in NATS competitions.  In 2016, Mr. Moore was elected and is still serving as president of the local chapter of NATS.  

A couple of years after Mr. Moore came to Florida College, he started producing and directing the annual student musical beginning with the 2001 production of “Brigadoon”. Since then, he has directed and produced 15 musicals and operettas, and produced another 20 musicals and plays at the school. In his career, Mr. Moore has directed and/or produced well over 100 operas, musicals and plays including such favorites as “Camelot”, “Into the Woods”, “Man of La Mancha”, "La Boheme", “West Side Story”, “Manon Lescaut”, “Fiddler on the Roof”, “Little Women”, and just about every operetta Gilbert & Sullivan wrote.
