Duncan Moore Duncan Moore

I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and began my drum studies at the age of 8. After years of school bands and orchestras, as well as weekend gigs with various rock bands, I moved to Iowa City, majoring in music at the University of Iowa. Studying percussion with Tom Davis, and playing with local jazz groups kept me busy until 1977, when I moved to San Diego, CA.

I also maintain a home recording studio, where I record drum and percussion tracks for various projects.

Besides teaching privately, I am the drumset instructor at Mira Costa College in Oceanside California, as well as the University of California San Diego, in La Jolla. I have been on the faculty at various jazz camps, and have given numerous drum clinics.

I am endorsed by Zildjian Cymbals and Vic Firth Sticks.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
