Overview

Whitney started singing professionally at the age of 14 with Six Flags Theme Parks. Since then she has been in Branson, Mo and traveled the world singing with Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Norwegian and Celebrity cruise lines. Doing so has given her the opportunity to teach voice to people of all talent levels and all walks of life. She now resides in San Antonio, Texas where she performs at and teaches vocal for Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

*** Lesson Details ***
A lesson with me is much more than working on your vocal ability. We are going to pick the perfect vocal selection for you and then work on your entire performance quality. I want to make sure you not only sound great but look like a confident performer whether you are onstage or at your friends wedding or competing. Depending on your goals or time line I am pretty easy going. After 3-6 months you can expect to learn good vocal technique, performance guidelines and the confidence to perform anywhere.

I am also excited to work with your pageant needs and I am very familiar with the Miss America system.

*** Studio Equipment ***
 keyboard, spare room or living room, seating for parents, access to backing tracks

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide an IPod speakers.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in performance for competitions. I can put together the whole package from helping choose music and costumes along with dance moves and perfecting your vocal technique. I can even make costumes. If you are wanting to compete in pageants or talent competitions I can help you reach your highest potential.

Whitney and I have wrote songs together for many, many years. Her ear for melody, harmony and background vocals is uncanny, not to mention her knack for writing a killer hook. My abilities to write and produce have grown leaps and bounds working alongside this talented expert. Thanks Whit!

I have only had 3 singing lessons with Whitney so far and already I'm feeling a lot more confident about my singing and can't wait to keep progressing with my high and low notes. :)

Great teacher! Very kind and fun to be around. She's down to earth and makes jokes here and there to keep the mood up. She has great technique for teaching; the better you get, the pickier she gets so look out! Keep being amazing Whitney!

Excellent teacher

Whitney has taken an absolute beginner (me) and created someone who can actually sing. I was very nervous at first and Whitney put me at ease. From the first lesson, she was encouraging and enthusiastic. And I never felt self-conscious or unsuccessful even though I'm sure there were times she must have wanted to cover her ears.

If you're thinking about lessons, Whitney is an excellent teacher. I highly recommend her.

Straight to the point

I feel that she caters to the needs of her students and offers a reliable and personalized plan. She's very professional and an amazing singer! I, myself, feel more comfortable with singing compared to when I had my first lesson (which wasn't that long ago!).

I highly recommend Miss Whitney, especially if you are looking for a teacher for your child.

Miss Whitney is an excellent teacher. My daughter had never had any training, Miss Whitney is kind, patient, encouraging and of course a very talented teacher! She has really produced great results with my daughter in a very short period of time. Abby loves going to class and enjoys every minute. We look forward to many more lessons to come.

Great teacher

Whitney recently began giving singing lessons to my 8 year old daughter. She is very patient, approachable, and communicates easily with both of us. She works at my daughter's pace, so she remains challenged and continues to enjoy the lessons. My daughter's confidence has increased and she is less anxious about singing in front of others.

Excellent teacher

As a complete novice, Whitney put me at ease immediately. And patiently "suffered" through my initial attempts. My progress and confidence are all due to her teaching.

Excellent with children

My 10 year old beginning signer started taking lessons with Whitney to prepare for an audition in a school play. I noticed improvement in her voice in just 2-3 lessons. Whitney is great with kids, she corrects bahavior in a friendly and fun manner. While she was great with my child, I would recommend her for any age group and skill level. Whitney is very technical and would benefit any performer.
