Robert Lunte and The Vocalist Studio
Initially inspired by artists such as Steve Perry, Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate; Robert Lunte sought a voice teacher who understood the techniques required to sing with hyper-extended range and power. The pursuit led Robert to eventually meet the legendary Maestro David P. Kyle of Seattle, WA
Maestro David Kyle taught for over 25 years in New York, 4 years in San Francisco and nearly 30 years in Seattle. He was the preeminent private coach for rock and metal singers of the 70s, 80s and 90s; artists such as, Geoff Tate from Queensryche, Ann Wilson from Heart, Chris Cornell from Soundgarden and Layne Staley from Alice in Chains.
Roberts home base is in Seattle, WA. So named The Vocalist Studio (TVS), the technique is inspired by Maestro Kyle. The cutting-edge strategy of TVS incorporates positive mental imagery, training with amplification, and developing head registers, so singers learn to bridge the path from chest to head voice with pop sensibility and metal edge.
Robert Lunte continues the Maestros legacy, pushing the envelope by incorporating new ideas and research into the TVS techniques and knowledge base.
Robert received a BA in Business/Industry and Vocal performance from the University of Miami. He trained with the talented artist and teacher, Dr. David Alt. The Classical training provides Robert a perspective on how to incorporate modern techniques in a cohesive manner.
Robert founded The Vocalist Studio in 1994.
