Born and raised in Argentina, he was a child prodigy who first studied with his father, the conductor at the Tetro Colon. In the early 1950s, Schifrin moved to France to attend the Paris Conservatoire, where he study both jazz and classical music. He returned to Argentina and landed his first credit providing the score for "El Jefe" (1954). The following year, Schifrin represented his homeland at the 1955 International Jazz Festival.
