Kyler Peter Simon is a young composer, pianist, clarinetist, and future astrophysicist. His dream is to be known as the first musical scientist. Born in New York City, he has grown up surrounded by various musical genres. He started playing the piano at age three at Turtle Bay Music School and currently studies at Lucy Moses Music School. He is in the seventh grade at Robert F. Wagner Middle School, where he has played clarinet in the band since 2017. He is a member of the St. Bartholomew’s Boys and Girls Choristers; had a choral residency in Exeter, England, in the summer of 2018; and has sung at Carnegie Hall and the Lotos Club in New York City. His father — a jazz musician — is his biggest musical inspiration, but he is also fascinated by the music of Leopold Mozart, J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and other Russian composers.

He composed his first work, Space Adventure, as a fifth-grader. His War and Peace was premiered at a Very Young Composers showcase before a 2018 Young People’s Concert. He is currently working on a piece, A Day in School, depicting a day in the life of a middle-school student.
