About Whitney:

Whitney Sanchez has been surrounded by a rich music culture ever since she was born. Having a Portuguese mother and Dominican father made her inherit the rich harmonic and rhythmic flavors from both cultures ever since she can remember. Born in New York City, one of the world’s most vast melting pots, strengthened her perception and musical ear. Educated by her surroundings and family roots, Whitney further developed her skills through participating in private lessons, musicals, gospel choirs, and youth bands.

After gaining a degree at the renowned Eugene Lang College, The New School in Culture and Media Studies, Whitney lived in Seville and Paris, before moving to London to achieve a master’s degree at Goldsmiths University. Almost instantly after her move to London, Whitney involved herself in various different musical projects; performing and recording in jazz bands, Latin trios, and soul ensembles. Last year, during the Covid-19 pandemic, she studied once more and earned a Level 1&2 certification in vocal pedagogy from the LoVetri Institute for Somatic Voicework. During this time, she also started writing and producing her own original work.

In February 2024, Whitney completed a 200-hour yoga teacher certification program at Gayatri Yoga in Tenerife, Spain. Combining her passion for music and yoga, Whitney integrates principles of conscious movement, breathwork, yoga and mindfulness into her teaching approach, focusing deeply on connecting body, mind, and soul with the voice.

‘Singing each day brings a calmness that is grounding. It is the practice of being present with my voice and my body, that allows me to express my inner world and soften my inner critic. However, I haven’t always felt this way with singing.

In my teens and early twenties, I struggled with confidence and getting out of my comfort zone. This was until I moved to London and motivated myself to perform and create in front of many different audiences.

Having gone through various experiences on this journey, I have learned that I love teaching and supporting others to discover their voice, with methods that lead to self-acceptance, compassion, and trust.’

Whitney has been giving voice lessons to children and adults since the beginning of 2020 and is excited to teach and connect with all people who are curious to discover their musical ear, voice, and the transformative power of yoga. Whitney noticed how integral her consistent yoga practice was to feel grounded, more present with her body, especially as a sensitive person and singer. Yoga has tremendously helped with her singing, and she is enthusiastic about offering yoga and singing private and group lessons.
