Monte Tubb (5 November 1933, Jonesboro, Ark. – 30 June 2016, Eugene, Ore.) was an American educator, conductor and composer.
He studied at the University of Arkansas and Indiana University. From 1964-1966, he was a Ford Foundation composer-in-residence in Atlanta, Georgia, after which he taught at Tarkio College.
In 1966, Monte moved to Eugene to teach theory, composition and musicianship at the University of Oregon, School of Music. During this time, he was also the Director of the Ford Foundation's Institute for Music in Contemporary Education, conducting seminars throughout the West Coast. Monte was a thought-provoking professor, blending philosophy, poetry and his rye sense of humor to create a unique and memorable teaching style. Monte retired from teaching in 1994 (Emeritus, 1991).
Monte was a prolific composer throughout his life. His repertory of compositions over the years includes works for band, orchestra, choir, chamber groups, voice, piano, and guitar. He was featured in 1972 as the Eugene Symphony's guest artist where his commissioned work "ORCHESTRAMUSIC 72" made its premiere performance. He continued to compose throughout his retirement.
