Rather than drawing from Wikipedia for its information, as the Knowledge Graph often does, this one draws from the Classical Composers database. Here’s what this source has to say about Moncayo’s life:

Pablo Moncayo Studied Composition Under Candelario Huízar and Carlos Chavez. He studied Piano with Eduardo Hernández, and was a member of the Mexican group of The Four, together with Daniel Ayala Pérez, Salvador Contreras Sánchez and Blas Galindo Dimas. In 1932 he joined the Percussion section of the Mexican State Symphony Orchestra. In 1944 he was appointed artistic director of the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico City, which he conducted from 1949 to 1952.
