Heather Lynn - Career Day at WLA

This afternoon there were about 20 professionals who came into WLA and gave presentations on their career areas to the WLA student body. Heather Lynn, WLA 98' grad and Country music singer/songwriter, spoke to music students about Music Performance as a career.  I'm very proud of Heather and her hard work seeing as she is a former music student of mine!  You can follow her Facebook Heather Lynn fan page or listen and buy her music on iTunes (she's got five singles there!) or Reverb Nation.  You can send her fan mail at or contact her for booking at

While every music performer's path from "unknown" to "star" is different, Heather Lynn shared with WLA students about how she followed her dream of becoming a Country music singer/songwriter. Some of the websites she mentioned were:

Colleges/Tech Schools/Degree Programs
Madison Media Institute
Marian College Music Administration Degree

Songwriters Guild of America

Networking/Finding Musicians
Reverb Nation

Recording Studio
Rock Garden Studio

  1. Thanks so much Mr. Witte!! I don't think I would be where I am today if not for your influence and guidance through the years. You are truly gifted at not only teaching and music, but at being an inspiration for so many people!
