Son of the Spanish composer Salvador Chuliá, Ernesto began to learn solfege and harmony at home followed by trumpet studies with Vicente López who — having studied with Maurice André — introduced him to the French school. This encouraged him to go directly to France, where he received classes from Maurice André amongst others. André once said of Chuliá: “Ernesto is a true artist that perfectly dominates the technical aspect of trumpet playing. I met him at the Albertville Competition, where I was amazed by his interpretation of Légende by Georges Enescu”.

Ernesto Chuliá is the author of the pedagogical book Vademecum for Trumpet Players, and he has completed two segments about musical education for the Spanish Public Television, one of which is a TV show about trumpet for children and the other one is about the job of being a trumpet player featuring his student Mario Martos and his maestro Maurice André.

He has collaborated with numerous Spanish orchestras such as Castilla y León Symphony, Balearic Symphony, Gran Canaria Philharmonic, Madrid Symphony, Spanish Radio and Television Symphony, Orchestra of the Community of Madrid, Modus Novus, Turiae Camerata, Valencia Orchestra… And been invited to give masterclasses throughout Spain.
