Mr. Terry Moore

Director of Choral Music
Assistant Drama Director

Mr. Moore is the director of choral music at Tuscarora High School and also serves as the Assistant Drama Director. He is thrilled to be part the Tuscarora community and to have the opportunity to work with the many talented students here in this beautiful facility. He is originally from Levittown, New York and now resides just north of Frederick in Smithsburg, Maryland. Mr. Moore is a graduate of the University of Maryland where he earned his B.S. in Music Education and also holds a Masters Degree in Counseling from Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College). Before beginning his teaching career, he made his living as an actor/singer and was fortunate enough to perform with the Washington Opera, the Berlin Opera and almost all of the Dinner Theatre’sin existence in the Washington D.C. area. He has continued to perform sporadically throughout his teaching career and has also served as director, musical director, artistic director, stage manager, and lighting designer at the Washington County Playhouse in Hagerstown. In the summer of 2011 Mr. Moore was fortunate enough to perform at two of the the most prestigious Equity Summer Stock companies in New England in a production of "Footloose". Over the past thirty years some favorite credits include: Jack Jerome (Brighton Beach Memoirs), Mr. Bumble (Oliver), Archibald (The Secret Garden), Emile (South Pacific),The Duke (Big River), Tony (West Side Story), Billy Bigelow (Carousel), Mordred (Camelot), and Lamar (Godspell). His proudest accomplishment by far is his twenty-six years of marriage to his wonderful wife Tracey and their ability to survive with humor, while raising our four children; Matthew, Katie, Genevieve, and Jordan.
