I thought as a theatre teacher that I didn't have much more to learn. I was wrong. Vandi has given me the confidence to sing. I hid in the altos for years and she helped me find the wider range I was seeking. She includes great visualizations in her lessons which helps a visual learner like me. I have the confidence to trust my breath and sing in ways I never thought possible. She is a wonderful teacher. Take lessons from her!

Vandi is awesome!! My 13 year old has been working with Vandi for several months now and her voice has improved significantly. Vandi is upbeat, happy and encouraging with her, while at the same time teaching her vocal control and technique. Also, we've had no issues with an on-line lesson - in fact, I love on-line lessons. It's very convenient. I highly recommend Vandi!

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

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!

Music Performance ·

I've rehearsed and performed with Vandi Enzor in a chamber setting per the requirements of her graduate voice degree. I accompanied her on guitar as she sang; the specific piece was the Seven Popular Spanish songs by the great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Vandi is professional, patient, hard working, receptive, and musical. Her great command of her instrument is evident, and more than that she has genuine joy in what she does. Collaborating with her was a pleasure, and I can't recommend her enough for musical instruction. A true professional.

Vandi is an amazing Voice teacher. My daughter has no only improved her vocal abilities, but her confidence, self-esteem, and posture are all also improved. She has also now tried out for community theatre and show choir at school, something she would have never done a couple of years ago. Through Vandi's musical instruction talent, my daughter has blossomed into a talented young lady. Thank You Vandi for bringing out the BEST in her.

Vandi is the best instructor I have ever encountered. She can hear exactly where your voice is resonating, and she knows exactly what exercise you need to open into your head voice and resonating spaces. She knows how to free your voice from tension. She is a sound musician, but is clearly a gifted artist and performer as well.

I played in the Advent Band with Vandi as our worship leader for several years. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious and she always provided positive, constructive criticism. Vandi's knowledge of music theory was demonstrated in her ability to arrange our songs to suit the various skill levels of the band members and the congregation! This is not an easy task and she handled it with ease and grace. I would highly recommend her as an instructor.

Vandi was the leader of the praise band at our church. She was a tremendous leader - challenging the band instrumentally and vocally. Her voice, both in the praise band and in the traditional choir were a great addition to the worship experience. Vandi was here for only a year or two but she made a great impression on everyone she met. Everyone was sad to see her go.

I had a lot of anxiety about singing solos. I had sung a lot in choir, but not by myself. I always got really nervous. Vandi helped me to relax and just enjoy singing and not think so hard about it. I believe that I have a really beautiful voice. I didn't before. Vandi is a really awesome teacher. I loved taking lessons with her.
