Rosamond Ley, (1882-1969), Moody's aunt, was a concert pianist who attended the Wimbledon School of Music before attending the Royal Academy of Music studying under the tutelage of Oscar Beringer’s .  Winning many medals her London debut at the Wigmore Hall in February 1905 was well received and during 1906-7 she continued her studies in London and Berlin under the Venezuelan concert pianist Teresa Carreo.  In 1908 she was introduce to the maestro composer/pianist Ferruccio Busoni,  who she had long admired, and who proved a strong influence on her development.
