He earned a Master of Music from California's University of Redlands in 1959, and did further studies in theory and choral conducting at Indiana University.
Career[edit | edit source]
Elliott joined the faculty of Mount Allison University in 1951, and taught there until 1993. He co-founded the Mount Allison Conservatory Chorale in 1953 and served as its director until 1993. He also served as a music examiner and adjudicator, becoming the Mount Allison Local Centre Examinations in Music supervisor in 1967, and adjudicating at many music festivals in eastern Canada. As an examiner, he "dispelled [students'] fears and nervousness by his gentleness and his genuine interest in them as people as well as musicians." Among his compositions were many choral works and piano pieces for young learners.
