Event Details

Cole Moran is a 16-year old boy who attends The Maryland School for the Blind in Baltimore MD. He lives with his mom, dad, younger brother and dog in a house full of musical instruments.

Cole was born blind and has cognitive delays. Cole also has early onset scoliosis and has been undergoing a series of corrective surgeries at Johns Hopkins which he will continue to have around twice a year until he is fully grown.

Cole started playing music as an infant and completed his first melody before age 1. He has perfect pitch and can tell you what key any song is in with just the first listen. Through the Maryland School for the Blind Cole received music therapy at an early age which helped him learn to speak. Coles instrument of choice as of lately is the harmonica which he plays intently learning every note of any song within a day. His dad Frankie Moran is a professional musician and together the two have been performing around the region to rave reviews as the band “Blind Wind.”

Cole loves listening to music, playing music, swimming, hiking, flying kites, the ocean, mom and dad, playing with his brother, and Disney World.

Our mission, which we have accepted, is to inspire the world and show everyone that making music is something anyone can do no matter what physical or mental disabilities one might have… And in doing so give confidence, breaking down social barriers and making the world a better place one note at a time.
