He first trained at the Cleveland Institute of Music from 1927 to 1929, then at the Eastman School of Music from 1930 to 1934. He later went to New York to study with Sessions and to Paris to study with Boulanger. In 1937 he won the Juillard Award, in 1938 and 1941 a Guggenheim Fellowship, in 1942 the Prix de Rome, and in 1943 the Paderewski Prize.
