Teaching since:
August 2008

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.

After a negative first experience (not with TakeLessons), I was a bit nervous about trying a new vocal teacher. I am so glad I did!! Whitney has made me feel very comfortable and given me the tools I needed to take my voice from good to excellent!

Only one lesson in but I've already learned so much more about singing than I knew there was. I still got a long way to go though but Whitney seems like she really knows how to get me there

I'm so glad that I met Whitney because she is the kind of teacher everyone should want. She is:
Kind
Teaches with passion
Very interested in student's interest and student's desire for accomplishment.
Provides on-site support, after hours support, and willing to listen to student's feedback.
Very, very, very encouraging
I'm so glad that I had Whitney as a music, singing, teacher/instructor.

Challenges you to reach your full potential each lesson. Great at instructing complete beginners and helping them to advance and push themselves quickly.

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

Whitney is a fabulous vocal coach. She's very talented and I was feeling intimidated before I started lessons. However, she's very down-to-earth and immediately made me feel at ease. She instilled confidence and I was very pleased at how much I learned so quickly. I highly recommend her.

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!).

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.

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.

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.

Rewarding, Entertaining, Successful Experience

The instruction Whitney provided throughout each lesson was very impressive. Her talent, credentials and ability to customize each lesson to improve my vocals and musical skills whether it was rock, pop, or country has been a rewarding experience.
