Akio Yashiro (1929 - 1976)

Akio Yashiro was born in 1929 in Tokyo. He began composition lessons with Moroi Saburo in 1940. While at the Tokyo Music Academy (presently the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music) in the Department of Composition, he studied composition under Hashimoto Kunihiko, Ikeuchi Yujiro, and Ifukube Akira, and piano under Toyomasu Noboru, Leonid Kreutzer, and Kawakami Kiyo. He finished the course in 1949 and completed graduate courses in 1951.

He then went to Europe with Mayuzumi Toshiro to study abroad with a French governmental fellowship at Paris Conservatorie. There he learned composition and orchestration from Olivier Messiaen, Tony Oban, and Nadia Boulanger. He received the first prize in harmony and made good grades in each course: Accompany with Piano, Counterpoint, and Fugue. He returned home in 1956.
