David's Autobiography

My name is David with Mac's Accordion. I was born and raised in the Pittsburgh, PA area. I received my first toy accordion at the age of six. It may have been a toy, but it was the beginning of my music journey. I later was given a student accordion from my Father at the age of ten and took lessons for many years at Jardine's Music Center in Pittsburgh, PA. I remember the first bass chords my teacher gave me to learn. I would practice the same given chords over and over and would drive my family crazy. 

My father was an Irish Tenor who sang professionally in the Pittsburgh area. I was eventually thrown into the act of performing with my father. I first started accompanying my father with the accordion at his performances. Then later, I made the transition to singing and playing. Little did I know that this would be the beginning of performing throughout my life.

I furthered my education at Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky then transferred to Geneva College in Pittsburgh, PA. I graduated from Geneva College with a bachelors degree in music education.

For the next fifteen years, I performed the Big Band Sound throughout Austin, San Antonio, and Georgetown, TX area. I then moved back to Pittsburgh with my fiancee, from Texas, and continued playing and singing. "Never marry a Texas Girl and take her to Pittsburgh, PA to live, you will end up in Las Vegas, NV." So, Nevada was our next destination to live. I have resided in Las Vegas, Nevada for the last 13 years. I have two beautiful children, a beautiful wife who is glad that she got out of the Pittsburgh weather, 3 horses, 3 dogs, a cat, an Amazon parrot, and a desert tortoise. Can you say Zoo!

I now teach the accordion and/or voice via SKYPE and locally to students from all around the United States in my Las Vegas studio.
I have been blessed to be able to do what I love to do in life and that is teach others.
