After receiving second prize on her first international competition, Margarita Escarpa received one of the most significant comments; Maria Luisa Anido proclaims her to be “100% artist ". In the same year she recorded her first CD produced by "Radio Television Española", about which C. Cooper wrote in Classical Guitar: " she knows what she is doing ... a serious and thoughtful musician... control of tempo, dynamics and mood are exemplary".
She gained her musical education at the "Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid” where she was taught by distinguished music teachers and was subjected to the influence of some of the best modern performers. She completed her academic education graduating with the Extraordinary Prize, and a short time later received her degree in Mathematics from the “Universidad Autónoma de Madrid”. Margarita has been awarded two national and eight international prices, including the “Solo Guitar Competition” organised by the Guitar Foundation of America. The combination of these prizes and her talent has provided her with the opportunity to regularly participate in some of the most important music festivals in Europe, Asia and America. As a soloist, Margarita has recorded compact discs for RTVE, Ópera Tres, Naxos, La má de Guido  and GHA Records.
She presently teaches at the Vigo Conservatory in Spain, where she continues perfecting herself with her pupils. Margarita plays with a Matthias Dammann’s guitar (Germany), and uses D’Addario strings. Specialised critics and the audience agree in highlighting her artistic sensitiveness and technical rigorousness, both guided by her broad training in music:

 “ … Escarpa held the audience under her seductive and bewitching spell. She indeed is a musical sorceress ...” Jeff Manookian, “The Tribune”, Salt Lake City (USA)

 " … the best balance of intelligence and  artistic style I have ever heard from a guitarist" David Letkemann, Guitar Magazine, Winnipeg, (Canada)
