Moore, who is a seventh-grade student at Poly Prep in Dyker Heights, is also enrolled in the organization’s Very Young Composers program. There, participants from the age of 8 are taught to create music.

 

The composition that Moore created for the program made a world premiere in a live performance by the NY Philharmonic in October.

 

Moore, who started showing her passion for music at the age of 2 when her mother gave her a piano, has showcased extraordinary talent.

 

Moreover, Moore hopes that as a woman of color, she can inspire others to create and appreciate music.

 

“I hope everyone follows their hobbies and do what they love,” Moore told PIX11.
