Hello World! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Davey Pitruzzello, your guitar/piano/voice/drum teacher! I am a full-time in home music instructor for all ages and experience levels. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Florida Atlantic University and have been teaching music lessons since 2009. I take great pride in watching my students progress on their instrument and unlocking their true potential.
After wanting to learn to play the guitar for years, I can’t say enough how grateful I was when I found Davey! He’s incredibly talented, both as a musician and a teacher, and has a unique way of making lessons rewarding from the start. I appreciate the way he values teaching the fundamentals, while also incorporating my musical tastes and keeping the lessons fun. I was blown away by how quickly I learned! He’s truly a gifted teacher and his warm personality and genuine encouragement make you want to play all day. Davey doesn’t just show you how to play an instrument - he teaches you how to be a musician.
"My daughter began guitar lessons with Davey in November ‘17 on the recommendation of her school music teacher. She and Davey clicked immediately and he made guitar fun for her, allowing her to learn and express herself fully. April 6, 2018 she won 2nd place in a talent show singing and playing ‘Stand by me’ after only 5 months of lessons! Davey is a phenomenal teacher and knows how to tailor the lesson to the student. I could go on and on but I believe you should allow yourself to see, he won’t disappoint."
"Davey is an awesome music instructor. He was especially great with my kids with special needs. He taught them how to play the drums using buckets. He knows how to motivate and engage his students. His bubbly personality allows him to reach the kids, and push them to their potential with ease. His passion and love for music, along with his creativity allows him to reach and teach students of all abilities. If you are looking for a fresh, experienced, upbeat instructor, look no further. Davey is truly the best!!!!"

"Davey is a dedicated teacher that has a gift with children! My daughter started playing the piano with no experience and little confidence. She has come such a long way in such a short amount of time. He modifies his lessons to suite your child's pace. He is encouraging and makes music fun!! Sometimes kids get discouraged, but it's up to the parents and teachers to keep them going and don't let them quit!! It takes patience and practice! Practice makes permanent ;-) I completely recommend Davey to all who are interested in getting there children into playing an instrument, he is talented, original and professional. Thanks Davey :-)"

"I recently decided to attempt to play the guitar. Davey is my first instructor and he has made my initial experience extremely exciting. He is energetic, encouraging and makes me feel accomplished at the end of each lesson."

"Davey is an incredibly talented musician and teacher. Davey was my voice instructor for a little over a year. He understood my range and limitations and helped me work to be a better singer. He introduced me to genres I never would have tackled before working with him. I highly recommend Davey as a voice instructor."

Only a few of you know that I have been mixing and producing music since the computer was in the sun room of my childhood home in Cromwell, Connecticut. After much contemplation, I have finally decided to start selling some of my beats for artists to purchase and make their own. While working as a barber in Long Beach, I have met so many aspiring rappers and singers. There is alarming amount of talent festering in the avenues of greater Los Angeles. It's like nothing I have ever seen. It seems silly to not pursue this unquenchable passion of mine with customers knocking on the musical door.
Collaboration has always been one of my favorite things about being a musician. It is a way for what you have created to gain new inertia and be injected with a new life force. I know that many of my friends are musicians as well - I would love to hear you or even just hear from you.
Below is the online store for beats and instrumentals straight from my lab. Stream links are included in the individual descriptions. Please enjoy and never let the dream be washed away.
