Teachers at the Old Town School

Elaine Moore

Guitar, Voice

Pop/Rock Traditional Folk Country

Recipient of the Old Town School of Folk Music's 2015 Distinguished Teaching Artist Award

Elaine studied vocal technique with Susan Dunn at Indiana University and with Kathy Cowan at the Old Town School. Her experience includes performing Folk, Country, Pop, and Traditional Irish performance at festivals, clubs, as well as private and corporate events.

I love to teach and especially like to help people who want to play and sing better. I have performed folk, pop, country, traditional Irish and rock over the years. I have overcome vocal problems and can use my experience to help others improve through good technique. 30 minute lessons ok but recommend 45.

Education: B.A. from Indiana University at Bloomington, 1983.

Started at the Old Town School in January of 1987
