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.

I have learned so much from Whitney. She teaches through practice and vocal exercise to strengthen the weaker areas of my voice, which has infinitely improved since working with her. I would definitely reccomend her.

I feel like Whitney has the "teacher gift" to make anyone a better singer and does it in a relaxing and fun way. I have realized that singing can be a great tool to learn to be more open and relaxed in everyday life. Thanks!

Lovely lady! She has been so helpful ever since I signed up for lessons with her! I've never taken voice lessons before so she has been showing me the ropes. I have an audition coming up pretty soon and working with Whitney has definitely calmed the nerves a bit, she helped me pick out a couple songs and now I feel like I have a good chance of landing the part! Thank you miss Whitney! <3
