Canadian violinist Nic Carlucci is in demand as both a violinist and pedagogue. With more than a decade of teaching experience and appointments at two distinguished Canadian Universities, he has begun to build a solid reputation as a highly regarded educator in the field of classical music.

As a musician, Carlucci has experience as both a chamber and orchestral musician. His keen interest in chamber music has led him across North America and parts of the Southern Hemisphere in both his studies and as a performer. Locally, Carlucci performs with several ensembles, most notably Magisterra Soloists International Chamber Players (of which he has also functioned as a core member of the administrative team) and as a violinist with Quartet di Altezza. His orchestral and other ensemble playing includes engagements with London Symphonia (formerly Orchestra London Canada), Windsor Symphony, International Symphony Orchestra, & Kammerchor Baroque, to name a few.

Carlucci prides himself on instilling passion and energy in the playing of budding violinists of all levels, while ensuring they develop a solid technical foundation that will endure the test of time. Starting his career, he spent ten plus years building his private violin studio. After completing a master’s degree in Violin Literature and Performance with acclaimed German Violinist Annette-Barbara Vogel, he was appointed the position of Violin Lecturer at Western University, now cross-listed with roles in both Music Performance and Music Education departments. He was also appointed Violin Instructor at Wilfrid Laurier University’s precollege String Academy of which he is the primary violin and group class instructor. In addition to teaching and building curriculum for several music programs, Carlucci has been known to adjudicate for music festivals, awards and sit on nomination committees. His students have been recognized with many accolades over the years.

Carlucci’s other primary violin instructors include Professor Jerzy Kaplanek and members of the Penderecki String Quartet, Mel Martin, and Mary-Elizabeth Brown.
