Dr. Deanna Cash Moore serves as professor in the Division of Music at Bob Jones University where she teaches piano literature and pedagogy, works with students in applied piano, and organizes departmental activities as head of the Keyboard Studies department. She regularly performs as soloist and collaborator with students, faculty, and guests and she gives presentations and master classes for students and teachers. 

Deanna holds a Doctor of Musical 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 has served as president of the South Carolina Music Teachers Association and has recently stepped back into the role of president of the Greenville Music Teachers Association. Deanna is currently the interim music coordinator for Heritable Bible Church of Greer, SC where she has been a member for over fifteen years.

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 wife to Michael William Moore, chair of the Division of Music, and mother to their four children. Deanna enjoys the excitement of a busy household, the rigor of running and swimming, and service to her local body of believers.
