Mrs. Amy Whitaker
I am so excited to be a part of the BRAVES NATION and the Might Braves Band! I will be teaching the 6th grade flute, clarinet, and saxophone classes, along with conducting the Edge Concert Band, and assisting with the Edge Honor Band, Mighty Braves Marching and High School Symphonic Bands.
After college, I became a middle school band director in Garland ISD and began teaching private clarinet lessons around the Lake Ray Hubbard area. I married my college sweetheart, Shannon, who is a Captain in the Dallas Fire Deparment. We have 4 beautiful children who are very active in baseball, competitive swim, and band, and we love to go camping and hiking whenever we can! My passions include my faith, my family, helping people lead a healthy lifestyle, and leading my students to discover a love of music and the instrument they choose to express that love!
