About Deanna

Dr. Deanna Cash Moore serves as Professor of Music at Bob Jones University where she teaches piano literature at the graduate and undergraduate levels, teaches applied piano, and organizes departmental activities. She performs as soloist and as collaborator with students, faculty, and guests. A recent performance during the Wagner/Verdi Fest given by BJU music faculty was captured here.

Deanna holds a Doctor of Music Arts degree in Piano Performance from the University of South Carolina, where she studied piano and piano pedagogy under Scott Price. She also studied literature and pedagogy under Charles Fugo and Marina Lomazov. She received a B.M. and M.M. in Piano Performance from Bob Jones University studying under the late Laurence Hamilton Morton. She serves on the faculty of the BJU Summer Music Camps and gives presentations and workshops for students and teachers. She is the Vice President for Programs for the South Carolina Music Teachers Association organizing the annual conference for teachers and students across the state.

Deanna claims Psalm 90:17 as foundational to her teaching and performing within a biblical worldview: “And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us; and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.” The idea of being a skilled performer and teacher who reflects a masterful creator flows naturally into literature study and recital preparation. Deanna mentors students not only in their musical growth but in their spiritual walk with the Lord, a calling she believes grows out of her own walk as a Christian musician. She is the wife to Michael William Moore of the music education faculty and a mother to four children. Deanna enjoys the excitement of a busy household, the rigor of running and swimming, and service to her local body of believers.
