At David’s Music House, we are very informal and do everything to make you feel as ease. There is no need to feel intimidated coming into the studio for the first time. We strive to make the complete process of planning your project one where you will have fun and be allowed to bring your creativity to it’s highest degree! We do not act like know-it-all experts. Everything we do is informal and relaxed.

We will sit down and help you plan your entire project and we won’t nickel and dime you for every second of time you spend in the studio. Our purpose is make sure that you are happy with your entire experience and that the result is that you will want to come back and tell your friends to come here as well.We would love if you would schedule the launch of your album on our Coffee House stage and we can help with that planning as well.

We help you plan your musical project with some good up-front planning.
Things such as:
•            Help with completing or arranging your songs.
•            Professional musician accompaniment can be provided at additional cost.
•            Musical performance coaching.
•            Practical guidance with often-misunderstood areas of copyright & CD duplication.

Here is a great video that shows how amazing Logic Studio is. You really do not need to bring you guitar amp any longer. Every possible sound from most any type of amp, speaker cabinet, type of microphone and even mic placement in front of the speaker….all visually displayed and digitally reproduced. Want the sound of you playing through a Marshall Stack, Mesa Boogie or Fender amp? You have it all in our Logic Studio. Check out our video.

Welcome to David’s Music House Music Program!

We want to thank you for showing interest in supporting music and arts and acknowledging the importance in your or your child’s development by bringing music and the arts into your lives!  We welcome the opportunity to have a helping hand in that development. There is proven data that shows how important the arts are to the development and overall intelligence and character of our youth.  Unfortunately, during our current times, many private and public programs are realizing funding cuts.

David’s Music House has been designed for the specific purpose of promoting and sharing this support for music and the arts. It is our mission to bring lovers of the arts to a “family friendly” venue where everyone can leave the stresses of the outside world and come to an environment where the love of the arts can be shared and enjoyed.  This is why we have all the resources one needs to learn, perform, be inspired by nationally and Pittsburgh area professional performers, record and learn the skills of marketing and promoting yourself as an independent musician. This is all within an environment where you can feel free to bring your entire family, to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere while you wait for your student’s lesson to finish in our Music Coffee House. Occasionally, you may happen upon an evening of impromptu musical performances. We also encourage our students and their families to come to our Concert Performances.  This is a local neighborhood opportunity to bring the family, but especially the student to be inspired in a way that money cannot buy.  To see, close up, seasoned professional performances that will make your student want to practice harder than ever!  Where else can you go for music lessons where you can find that “real inspiration?”

Thank you again for choosing David’s Music House for your learning center and for your support by spreading the word about us and coming to our Concerts and all of our music events.

We have partnered with a Local area business, Music Hut, who has been renting and repairing instruments for many years in the Pittsburgh area. We are often asked by parents if we rent guitars and other instruments as they do not wish to make a purchase of an instrument until they are more sure which instrument their child wants to learn.

We are doing whatever we can to provide your Total Music Experience at David’s Music House.
