David McHugh was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Education at SUNY Fredonia, majoring in piano, and a master’s degree in Composition at CUNY Queens. Though his career has focused mostly on music composition, he has worked in many areas including writing, sculpture, architecture, photography, and furniture making.

In spite of achieving success in his career path, his primary motivation has been to achieve an ever-increasing state of awareness, exploring human consciousness, and the nature of beauty. He believes the journey entails focusing away from the self, to the larger context in which we exist.
He lives in Winston Salem, North Carolina, where he raised his three children, and currently heads an MFA Program in Film Composition at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. He continues to be active in all areas of work, and can be reached via email at: davidmchugh0529@gmail.com.
He is available for lectures, seminars, film scoring, and commissions.
