Music Lessons with Declan Miers

From: $35.00

Learn music with a pro bassist, guitarist, & touring performer (Mac Ayres, Cautious Clay, Aqueous), composer, and songwriter (Brasstracks).

Find, develop, and control your unique musical voice.

The relationship between a teacher and a student is one that requires trust. My “M.O.” as an educator is to develop that trust with my students and embark on an individualized path that’s educational for both of us. And while each path is personal, they all lead to the same destination—discovering one’s own musical voice. Through tone, articulation, perspective, and energy, you will achieve and express your individual voice. But total CONTROL of that voice is how you achieve validation and versatility in music. Together, we will use multiple approaches, perspectives, and techniques to find and control your voice. Regardless of your instrument, prior knowledge, or current skill level, we can transcend the barrier between idea and execution.
