Sara Moore earned her Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education and Piano Performance from Appalachian State University and her Master of Music degree in Music Education from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Although a piano major, she studied violin from middle school through college and knew that she always wanted to be an orchestra teacher.
Sara began her teaching career in Durham Public Schools in 2000. In 2007 she created the orchestra program at Riverside High School, where she is currently the Orchestra Director. An active member of the American String Teachers Association (ASTA), as well as the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), Sara also coaches sectionals and teaches at the summer music camp at the Duke University String School.
Outside of teaching, Sara spends most of her time outdoors running, hiking and gardening, and playing and writing music in the band Malt Swagger. She lives in Hillsborough with her husband and many pets.
