Yatco obtained his music teacher’s diploma at the young age of 16 from the University of the Philippines in 1947. He trained with renowned teachers such as Ivan Galamian at Juilliard and with Wilhelm Stross at the State Academy of Music in Munich, Germany. He won top prizes in prestigious international competitions in Germany, and eventually performed as a soloist.
Yatco served as conductor, concert master, professor and music consultant for local orchestras such as the Manila Symphony Orchestra, the Cultural Center of the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, and overseas in Hannover, Germany. Yatco commented in retrospect
After nearly 60 years of music making, I feel I’ve been very fortunate to follow this path. But there are many things in life that just happen. You can’t really determine your destiny. Just leave it to the powers that be.
