He holds a Ph.D. in fine arts (composition and interdisciplinary fine arts) from Texas Tech University, as well as a M.M. and Bch.Sc. from Ball State University. Dr. Hoover is the Dean at Delaware College of Art and Design in Wilmington, Del.

Dr. Hoover's music ranges from soloist to symphony orchestra. He has received recognition through the prestigious Trieste prize, awards from Mu Phi Epsilon, the Lancaster Fine Arts Festival, grants, publications fellowships and over 20 commissions. He is a member of the ACME roster of Mu Phi Epsilon, recognizsed for distinguished achievement as a composer.

One aspect of his work is the combination of his music with his own paintings, creating unique interdisciplinary works. His paintings, in professional exhibitions, can be appreciated for their own value, or in concert, where the audience has an opportunity to hear his music and see his art at the same time.

Hoover's experience as a conductor and performer has included orchestra, jazz ensemble, concert band, and choir, performing and conducting his own music as well as the music of other composers. As producer of New Music Today concerts, he has been active in bringing together the audience, performer and composer.
