Update Ed Nuccilli Follow

Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Ed Nuccilli was born on the east side of Detroit and was the youngest of five children. His father, Peter Nuccilli, an Italian immigrant, played trumpet for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and also gave private lessons to aspiring musicians. At a young age, Ed knew he wanted to go into music and play the trumpet like his father. “I remember watching my sister play the piano when I was only about 9 years old, and looking at the notes on the page and thinking I'd like to write those notes one day.” Ed started studying music with his father at the age of 12, learning the “Solfeggio system”. His father insisted he master the system before even picking up an instrument, so after eight months of studying the written music, his father came home one day with a trumpet for him. It was a “King” horn that his father paid $35 for. This was Ed's first trumpet. Although a classical music foundation was laid for Ed, he felt he wanted to take up a different style of music; where he could actually play his trumpet for more that a few bars here and there, like in the symphony.
