Music Lessons & Coaching with Dechen Hawk
Are you a songwriter, a performing artist, and you just feel like you haven't been able to express yourself fully? Do you feel frustrated because whenever you sit down to write a song, it's only so good--but you know and can sense that it could be even more potent and ascend to an entirely different level? Or have you’ve reached a certain level of success, but haven’t been able to break the threshold? If you said yes to any of those questions, then you need an outside perspective from somebody who’s committed to offering that perspective consistently. I work with my students to find out what’s holding them back, where it is they want to go with their songwriting but can’t because they don’t have the skillset and empower them to move through those blockages with confidence so that they can thrive and meet their goals. So, if you’re an artist, if you’re somebody who makes music and you want to bring it to the world, but for some reason haven’t been able to do it in the way or at the level you know you’re capable of, we need to talk. If you’re ready to take it to the next level, realize your full potential, and experience freedom through mastery, then click the link to set up a video chat with me.

Freedom Through Mastery:
Music Lessons & Coaching with Dechen Hawk
Hey, I’m Dechen Hawk. I’m a lifelong musician and Buddhist. I’ve been making a living in the music industry for over 20 years as an entertainer, vocalist, composer, performer, and multi-instrumentalist. I’ve written hundreds of songs and recorded multiple albums. I’ve played major venues and festivals and shared the stage with top acts. I’ve studied and taught music at the university level. And I’m also a master teacher and coach, uniquely positioned to offer insight due to my extensive mindfulness training and meditation practice.
And the one thing that I've learned from my studies is that those iconic artists, musicians, and groundbreakers that we all love and learn from have had people that have worked with them and coached them along the way. Justin Timberlake & Nelly Furtado had Timbaland. Snoop Dog & Eminem had Dr. Dre. Lou Reed & Iggy Pop had David Bowie. John Coltrane & Herbie Hancock had Miles Davis. It was that guidance that allowed them to flourish and blaze new trails.
The self-taught/self-motivated approach is excellent and definitely to be encouraged, but it will only get you so far. Music is a trade. It gets passed down from skilled professionals to apprentices. Working with a seasoned pro is essential to succeeding in the industry. You need someone to guide you. The meat of it is in the relationship.
Imagine your musicianship at the level of mastery that gives you the freedom to do what you want. I coach musicians so that they can fully develop their musical artistry. I will guide you through a process of discovery and integration including technical mastery, creative vision, and self-exploration that will allow you to realize your full creative potential and enjoy the opportunities that come with it. I provide a safe environment for you to grow and thrive in. I will lower your anxiety and offer you absolute confidence to deliver what’s needed. I’ll get you to meet the expectations of the industry or college, and set you up for the world of being a professional musician. Nothing of value is easy, but I’ll be there to guide you through the process and support you along the way.
So if you’re ready to take it to the next level, realize your full potential, and experience freedom through mastery, then click the link to set up a video chat with me.
Note, though, that in order for me to deliver on my promise, I give my mentees my full attention and only take on a few students at any given time. So space is limited. I hope we have the chance to work together and I look forward to supporting you in reaching your goals.
Being a professional musician can be challenging and lonely. As an artist and entrepreneur, it can be especially hard to navigate your way through the music industry and your musical development by yourself. More often than not you’re left with a lot of unanswered questions.
Here are a few answers to the more common questions I come across about the value of having someone supporting you through the process.
What is a coach?
A coach is someone who helps you identify your goals and develop an actionable plan to achieve them. A coach is someone professionally trained to help you maximize your full potential and reach your desired results.
I will guide you through a process of discovery and integration including technical mastery, creative vision, and self-exploration that will allow you to realize your full creative potential and enjoy the opportunities that come with it. I’ve studied and taught music at the university level. And I’m also a master teacher and coach, uniquely positioned to offer insight due to my extensive mindfulness training and meditation practice.
Why do people go to a coach?
There is power in someone else, a professional, reflecting back at you what you say and see to open up your mind, to identify your blind spots, to encourage discovery, and support you.
I work with my students to find out what’s holding them back, where their holes are--where it is they want to go with their songwriting but can’t because they don’t have the skillset--and empower them to move through those blockages with confidence so that they can thrive and meet their goals.
Are there coaches for musicians?
Yes! I’m one of the few musician-focused coaches out there committed to offering this important service. It brings me tremendous joy to facilitate the transformation of my students and to watch them become the masterful and influential individuals they were born to be. In the arts, having somebody willing to sit there with you and go deep into your innermost self is incredibly valuable. The value of having somebody unlock your capacity to express who you are entirely and share it with others is priceless.
the power of music and mentorship
Never before has the importance of music as a central unifying and common force been on display as it has now. And it is conspicuous in its absence.
