Koichiro Muroya (室屋 光一郎, Muroya Kōichirō, born November 4, 1980 in Osaka) is a Japanese violinist and violist. His interest in classical music began with his father taking him to a live orchestra performance. He upset his parents with his wish to pursue music when he was five since his father could barely sustain them as a middle wage salaryman. His father persevered to purchase a violin for Muroya, and he began music lessons at an early age. Muroya originally planned to keep attending basic musical education at a local high school until his instructor recommended enrolling at The Music High School attached to The Faculty of Music, Tokyo University of the Arts. He lived alone for his education and debuted when he was 16 due to recommendations from his personal acquaintances.
Since his debut, his violin performances can be heard throughout the Japanese entertainment industry. He often provides violin performances for vocalist Minori Chihara. Anime fans can hear his performances in the Attack on Titan, KILL la KILL, and Mobile Suit Gundam UC soundtracks.
Muroya is the key violinst/violist for several characters in the Kiniro no Corda live events. For the first two titles centric live events, he plays for Tsukimori and Ousaki. During the third title stage presentations, he plays for Tohgane and Daichi. He is also the main performer for Ritsu and Myoga and Kyoya's substitute violinist in the Blue Sky TV series adaptation. Koei often uses Muroya as the violinist for countless character image songs and CDs not listed here.
