Born and raised in New Orleans, Stanton is probably best known as a founding member of Galactic but he also has a highly successful solo recording career. His studio work is extremely diverse, showing his ability to play most styles at the highest levels, and ranges from jazz-funk keyboardist Robert Walter to heavy metal act Corrosion of Conformity. The list of musicians with whom he has toured or recorded continues to grow, and includes John Scofield, the legendary George Porter, Jr. and Leo Nocentelli of the Meters, Charlie Hunter, Warren Haynes, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Irma Thomas to name only a few!
The Institute is proud to welcome Stanton, and he’ll join the ever growing list of world class musicians who chose to spend their time sharing their wisdom with our students! If you want to play with the best, you have to be where the best are!
The Stanton Moore clinic will be taking place from 1pm to 3pm on Thursday 4th October. Places are very limited and for details please contact the ICMP.

About Stanton Moore:
Stanton Moore is very much a product of geography, culture and creative networking. He grew up in the thriving music scene of his hometown that included Professor Longhair, Doctor John, the Meters and countless other Big Easy mainstays. In the early “90s, Moore hooked up with guitarist Jeff Raines, bassist Robert Mercurio and keyboardist Rich Vogel and saxophonist Ben Ellman to form the New Orleans-based “steam-roller” funk band known as Galactic. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in music and business from Loyola University, Moore and the band made their first record (the widely acclaimed Coolin” Off) and hit the road. The band has released five more albums since Coolin” Off, and continues to amass a worldwide audience via recording and touring globally.
Aided by eight-string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter and saxophonist Skerik, Moore launched his solo career in the late “90s with the All Kooked Out! He has since extended this with Flyin” the Koop, Mysteryfunk, Emphasizer and Outre Mer amongst many other projects.
