Loved working with Allen on voice lessons: good vocal warm up activities, friendly and low-key demeanor. Plenty of opportunities for performance or master classes for those interested. Easy to schedule regular appointments.

At Cardon Studios, I learned how to sing Italian arias from the 18th and 19th centuries under the tutelage of a professional, highly skilled, knowledgeable, patient instructor. I also received instruction on how to hone performance skills. I am so... grateful and appreciative of all the teachers and the management at Cardon Studios for welcoming me to a larger community of DC musicians. If you're seeking a fun time or a deeper learning experience - or both simultaneously - this is your music school!read more

Please Review-These sessions with Tanya have been unreal, amazing, interactive and full of utter knowledge and discovery! When I started my sessions I felt like I had serious issues with my voice like vocal nodules or I popped a chord due to the... last coach. However, Tanya changed and Continues to change my way of thinking about music and overall knowledge base with her enchanting voice, intelligence, uncanny metaphors and sense of humor. I started with her having doubts and not knowing why my voice was wobbly as the game Tumble and why I couldnt project if my life depended on. It is now going on Lesson 6 and she has done the following to me-1. Gotten my voice to become even with Vibrato in most registers2. I Speak and Sing with Support and in Full Voice3. Has My Air and Breathing Flowing4. Sing on Rythm5. Can Sing down to F#2!Additionally, she is doing some wonderful things to my Tenor voice-1. It is Lesson 6 and I am Already Practicing in Tenor High C in Full Voice!!!!(Hold Your Appause until the End)2. I am trying to do singing Full Time/Professionally so with rehearsing my Voc Lessons and performing a Song- My Coworker put me in contact with a MusicPR!!!!(Wait There's More)3. I am a Mutant/Freak of Nature-I was listening to Mariah Carey Dream Lover and I produced a C7(The Introduction Note) and as I told Tanya that none of Me but her vocal lessons. I just got so excited whIle practing and then turned on Pandora and I heard that song and just did it! Tanya stated she will assist me in developing this extremity of my voice which makes me adore and want to continue to learn and be guided by her even more. She's amazing!So with all this being stated-Take a bow Tanya! You deserve it!!!read more

I fancy myself somewhat of a vocalist, having participated in state level audition choirs, singing through college in school choirs, and aceing solo and ensembles. Even with years of 'choral' instruction under my belt, I received excellent... instruction from Seana. In addition to being an excellent instructor, she's also incredibly nice. If you're interested in voice lessons, I highly recommend Cardon more
