About David McArdle
Get to know David McArdle
My name is David McArdle. I am 42 years of age. I started playing guitar when I was 13 years old.
I was self taught for the first 18 years of my playing. When I decided to go to college to study music, I began taking lesson
from college Professor Robert Teixeira at CPCC and then transferred to Queens University of Charlotte to continue studying
with Robert to complete my degree. My area of study at both colleges was Classical Guitar Performance, Music Theory and
Composition. I was 15 when I played my first concert and since then I have been active in many band performances,
studio recordings, regional touring, writing, and teaching. I have written and performed in different genres of music from
Heavy Metal, Hip-Hop, Electronica, Country, Rock n Roll, Early Music Consort, and Classical. Music has been a passion of
mine since I was very young. It wasn't until I heard the electric guitar that I knew that it was going to be a big part of my life.
I am married to my beautiful wife Crystal and we have 2 children Tara and Kyle. We are a family that love music and understand
that music has a very important role in education and well being.
