Maria Carrasco Gil began her musical education at the age of 8 in Tarazona, her hometown. She finished the Bachelor of Music Performance at the Conservatorio Superior de Música in Aragón with Juan Luis Gallego in 2012, followed by a Master in Pedagogy at the University of Zaragoza. She was introduced to the Early Music performing by the violin teacher Elsa Ferrer in Madrid, who motivated her to continue with the Studies abroad. Since 2015 she studies with Veronika Skuplik at the University of Arts in Bremen, Germany.

She attended masterclasses with Latica Honda-Rosenberg, Haim Taub, Nicolas Chumachenko, Tabea Zimmermann, as well as Vera Martínez Mehner (Cuarteto Casals) and Aitor Hevia (Cuarteto Quiroga). Her interest in the early music led her to the Jeune Orchester de l'Abbey in France and to participate in several master classes with Hiro Kurosaki, François Fernandez, Enrico Onofri, Shunske Sato and Philippe Herreweghe.

She has performed with Orchestras as well as with Chamber Music Ensembles at international festivals in Italy, Scotland, France and Austria and in Concert Halls such as the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Berliner Philharmonie, die Glocke in Bremen... Nowadays she performs Urgent Music, the Ensemble Weser-Renaissance, Oltremontano, La Dolcezza, Bremer Barockorchester et al.
