About the event

Percussionist Steven Moore performs a range of repertoire on Marimba and Vibraphone.

Performance

Steven has received praise at hundreds of solo concerts throughout the UK and continues to develop and share new and exciting percussion music.  His online profile as a solo artist has developed rapidly over the last few years with thousands of people following his online performances throughout the world.    He has performed and recorded various concertos during this time with orchestra's and ensembles in the North East of England.  As principal percussionist for championship section Easington Colliery brass band he has performed throughout the UK at various venues and competitions including the National Championships at the Albert Hall.

As a tutor Steven owns his own music school in Blyth, managing the music education of students learning a wide range of instruments.  Steven has been appointed as percussion tutor for both Durham University and Newcastle University, he is a visiting lecturer for the University of Leeds and has provided masterclasses at various other institues throughout the UK .

In 2023 Steven was appointed as president for the UK chapter of the 'Percussive Arts Society'.  Steven has developed a new website (ukpas.com) and will be developing various percussion events in the UK over coming years.

Academic Development and Research

In 2019 he completed his Bachelor Degree in performance, receiving a 1st class honours degree from Wolverhampton University, alongside the award for best music performance.  Realising how much he enjoyed developing his performance skills, he moved to Leeds University to continue his academic skills.  Steven completed his Masters degree in performance in 2021 with distinction and was presented the student award for outstanding achievement.  Inspired by the researching performance elements in Leeds, Steven now continues his research to complete his PhD.

The Marimba is a relatively young instrument when comparing to instruments such as the Piano or Violin.  Therefore the instruments repertoire and techniques are developing constantly, making it an incredibly exciting time to be a percussionist.

Stevens research looks at the 'Transcription and Performance of Baroque Harpsichord on Marimba' developing a transcription process, performance techniques and a new range of repertoire.  His hope is to share his research and music with the world and inspire performers to develop the instrument further.
