Vandi was simply excellent. She has patience, poise, enthusiasm, and clear talent and knowledge that was a perfect match for a beginning 10-year old voice student!

My daughter is very shy and does not have a lot of confidence in her singing. She's had three lessons with Vandi and is already coming out of her shell. Vandi is very updbeat, comforting and motivating which has been a perfect fit.

Terrific first lesson. Vandi caught her interest and showed that she knew her business. Vocal improvement was immediately apparent. There were no complaints about the 'homework.' We look forward to continuing singing lessons with Vandi.

Audition Prep · Online
Verified Student
My 16-year old daughter just had her first online lesson with Vandi (to prepare for a vocal audition and a monologue audition as part of a modeling opportunity). Vandi was amazing in so many ways! She asked all the right questions to figure out and understand what my daughter was preparing for and what my daughter needed to accomplish from lessons. She immediately impressed me with her insight of "the industry" and of the process my daughter is undergoing to try to break into that industry. After talking with Vandi, it was so very apparent to me that she has the personal experience and expertise to help my daughter. Vandi was very adept at figuring out my daughter's personality, likes, strengths and weaknesses. From the plethora of songs and monologues Vandi had at her fingertips, after talking/singing with my daughter, together they arrived at suitable options and narrowed it down to a few songs and monologues, which my daughter now gets to select her audition pieces from. My daughter has only had one year of choir in school and was nervous about taking private vocal lessons; however, she enjoyed her first lesson with Vandi so much, she is no longer nervous and looks forward to more lessons...a true testament to Vandi's kindness and teaching abilities! I'm totally impressed by Vandi, can't imagine any other teacher could be better, and so glad we chose her to help our daughter prepare for auditions.

Vandi was very sweet and informative. My son has attention issues and even through all his questions both about the piano and about other randomness, she exhibited patience, redirected him and kept to the schedule so we were getting the most out of our appointment! I was very impressed and my son is very excited!
