2020 Contest Winner
“Our family had the best experience working with Stage Doors Studios during their Holiday Vocal Contest. Debbie and Heather were so easy to work with and you can tell how much time, love, and energy they put into not only this contest but also into their studio. You can tell they really care about their students. We are looking forward to working with Stage Door Studios in the future.”
2020 Arrangers Choice
Claire has been a vocal student of Debbie Cardy for over five years, and we cannot say enough about Debbie’s talent and gift for teaching and coaching singers. Debbie is patient, kind, dynamic, and an expert in her craft. This studio is top-notch. They bring in the best local musicians and directors to really give Claire a varied and rich musical education.
The contest was very well done, particularly since it all had to be executed virtually due to Covid.
The winners had the unique and exciting opportunity to record with the composer in a professional recording studio. My daughter has grown immensely as a musician and in confidence at Stage Door, and we look forward to many more years of music with Debbie and her team.
