  1. Dear members. So I went to the local music store to inform about singing lessons and the shop-owner suggested I should take a look into the online program of Tanesha Walker, which lead me to searching for more (online) coaches. Now I've been wandering around the internet for a couple of months already, looking for the best program. Realising I am completely singing the wrong way (will probably put up a sample on the Review my singing as soon as the payment is done), I am in need of good material. (I also think I should learn how to sing from the diaphragm) Now I also recently won a microphone of Brett Manning, the founder of Singing Success, and I am seriously wondering to buy his program. Though I've heard that his exercises 'broke down' the voice of Hayley Williams while she was singing there and she switched to Ron Anderson. Further, I've also recently purchased the 10$ Vocal warm-up app from Ron Anderson, which is going great! Although it does not adress any real techniques. Does anyone have experience with these online programs? Are they worth the money? I've also looked up some more about Jaime Vendera, Ken tamplin, etc. Though I am really confused which one is the most usefull program, since they all present theirselves as 'the best' haha. Any help would be very much appreciated!
  2. I've now had a few wonderful lessons with Robert and I'm still working through my lessons So much material in The Four Pillars. Seriously good stuff. When I started, after years of singing classically in mostly head register, I had an extremely limited belt range (for a woman). So limited that I was only able to hit G4 or so in belt. I've been at this for 3 or so weeks now, and I'm up to a solid D5 in a strong belt using the onset and sirens, and today on a few sirens I was able to bridge up to my F#5 smoothly and cleanly with almost zero tonal change. I still have a LOT of work to do, but holy shnikes. I'm not solid yet - I have a lot more practicing to do but I have to say I'm pleased. I'll keep going with the log, so that progress can be seen and heard, but I'm super happy so far!!!

    A week into The Four Pillars and after my first lesson with Robert, I thought I'd post a little update song. I'm having a bit of trouble with my headphone/recording - I think there's a bit of delay getting through to the headphones so I feel like often I'm 1/8th of a beat late - please let me know if you hear that too and if you know how to fix it! Any other comments are also welcome! It got yanked from soundcloud because of the backing track, so I'll have to figure that one out. Without further ado, me with Back to Black: http://picosong.com/xC4h/ And the original, in case you haven't heard it:
  4. "White Rabbit" Tribute! I am proud to share a performance and production of Jefferson Airplane's classic, "White Rabbit". SaraEllen has been training with TVS for about two years. Excellent job SaraEllen! LOVE the curbing vowel resonance, steady embouchure, and "snappy" glottal attacks on the vowels, apart from the interpretation that captures the nuances we coached and discussed. Sounds great, looks great, a kick ass production and worthy achievement! Coach.
  5. I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about my singing? What category is it? Or style? Am i tone deaf? What do you think i need to work on? I usually only sing at home. I've never sang in front of other people. I love to sing, and I do it everyday! I'd love to hear your advice or opinions please. Thank You !!!

  7. Hello Robert and Hello to all! I just ordered the TVS program and am excited to start working on my singing. Quick bio. 48 Y.O. male from southside Virginia. I have played lead guitar since 1988. After taking many years away from home recording, I got back into it about 18 months ago and had to learn the new DAWs etc from scratch. To make a long story short, I have about 50 "songs" on my hard drive that need vox. I also have quite a few lyrics written without any music etc. It has been difficult (impossible) for me to find any singers to work with so the next logical step is to just develop my own singing voice more. Hopefully it is not too late. Besides which, I love to sing even if I am not very technically aware at this moment. As far as singing, I want to sing rock, classic rock, 80-90s rock, grunge, bluesy styles etc. In my songs I generally find myself in sort of the style of VH, Rainbow, Whitesnake, LedZep....sort of melodic and bluesy stuff. (at least thats the aim, hehe) My fave singers in no order. Ann Wilson, David Coverdale, Goran Edman, John Sykes, Glenn Hughes, Mark Slaughter, Marq Torien, Barry Gibb, Layne Staley and many others. I am not fixated on copying anyone though, I just want to develop my own innate abilities. My dream song might be "Love Kills" by Mark Slaughter when he was with Vinnie Vincent, but again, its not a fixation. (Im aware Mark had a pretty high voice lol) My current estimation of my singing abilities? I have potential to have a nice voice etc but am pretty clueless technically and totally untrained lol. Just from browsing vids etc I think I have a good understanding of some of the terminology....chest voice, head voice, falsetto, bridging etc. I understand the concept of vowel modification but have never tried to practice it myself. I am probably like a lot of other untrained people. If the song happens to "fit" my current capabilities, then I sound decent. But if it doesn't, I sound like a frog that spent the previous day hollering at a sports event. Sometimes I can sing along with the verse to a song but when it goes into the higher chorus part I cant hit that.....or I can hit it but I have to jump up to head voice with no bridging going on lol. I think my head voice is developed to some degree but there is a no mans land between my chest voice and head voice. If I work on a song I tend to get into a lot of pushing/straining/choking lol. No bridging currently happening. On occasion I also like to throw in some BeeGees falsetto. Anyway, I am excited to get to work and am looking forward to some nice progress. I am throwing in this link to a "before" song where I sang and played guitar over an existing rhythm track. This was in Jan 2014. Pretty sure all the vox are doubled. (manually sang twice) Im pretty good at doubling...since I have never thought my voice was good enough to stand on its own yet lol. Any feedback on the singing is welcome. Id be interested as to what my natural range is. I understand it isnt going to be that impressive as it is an untrained voice but maybe we can get an idea of what we are working with and what potential for range and style I might have etc Thanks a lot for any feedback! https://clyp.it/egudjvlp Peace, JonJon
  8. I had my lesson with my vocal coach yesterday. He noticed that I, firstly, was going to hard on the vocals. Meaning, I was in some instances pushing too hard or semi-screaming or yelling. Secondly, he noticed that I didn't have good connection between head and chest. So, he suggested that I start with very soft sirens in order to get a good foundation of connection, then eventually add power to it. He showed me some exercises that bring the chest up into head and head down into chest. He said that a mix between the two is what I'm aiming for, which makes sense. So, after observing me doing a few exercises, he said that I should start doing some strengthening of the connection between around A3-F4 to start, then gradually move up tone by tone. Does this seem like a good idea? I'm wondering what I should do when I reach the limits of what I can bring chest into (right now, the max I can do is A4, but it's harsh). At what point do I want to go into pure head voice? Mixed? And lastly, does what my vocal coach says make sense to you all? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
  9. I just had an audition last night and nailed all of the songs better than I've ever done before. I thought my voice would deteriorate the older I got, but it's better now than it was when I was 20, thanks to Robert's program. I'm super stoked at the possibilities since I've only begun with the foundation building routine. I can't wait to get more in depth with the program. It's like I've had blinders on all of my life and was too afraid to admit I could learn a thing or too.
  10. ROBERT LUNTE AXIOM FOR THE DAY: I sang this beautiful classic love song by Handel at the University of Miami "back in the day". Although I doubt as nicely as Richard Lewis does on this performance. While enjoying Richard's rendition, it suddenly dawned on me the following... Take the most beautiful man and compare him to the most beautiful woman in a beauty contest, and no gent has ever had a chance. In spite of our merits guys, we just are not as "inspiring" for eyes to gaze upon in regards to physical attraction. And that is ok, that is the way nature has set it up. But to my point... "Humankind" doesn't write songs like this about men... only women get songs like THIS. Oh sure, there is the occasional Pat Benatar, "Fire & Ice" or Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man", we do get a few bones tossed our way fellas, but let's be honest, we never get songs like "Faithfully" by Journey, or "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars, or song like "Where'er You Walk" that has been playing for hundreds of years. Guys get, "You Broke My Heart" songs... but women truly get LOVE songs of such great adoration from us smitten clunky fumbling males. In Summary, the power of female attributes, which certainly would include aesthetic beauty, arguably has inspired a greater inspiration to write the greatest love songs through the ages. Thus, nature, or evolutionary biology of the sexes, influences observable and apparently evident differences art of love song composition. I just find that to be an interesting observation. This song by Handel is what?... 400 years old? Chances are, prior to it being published at the time, it likely existed in an earlier version as a folk song that people ( or guys...), sang around the camp fire, or to try to serenade a woman. Guys, Listen to this song and follow the lyrics and tell me that you have never felt this way about a woman? BTW... ladies in case it isn't obvious, this is a compliment to you and yours.
  11. Congratulations Sylvie Guichard. TVS Certified Instructor from France. A pretty soulful vocal track. It has been great working with you through the years! Coach...

  15. I will begin by tell you about how i did it. I will briefly and make it quick, few years ago i understood that i want learn how to singin and i search for a really good guide to develop my singin skills. and i found this website that really helped me. he was really that good that i really want to recommend. www.TheFourPillarsofSinging.com
  16. Singingsuccess.com paid Google for advertising that rips off The Vocalist Studio's customers and product, by paying for a high ranking advertisement of "The Pillars of Singing" (no "four") , ... a forged name of the real product, and then redirected TVS web traffic to their web site. Pretty greedy & cowardly guys... Do you actually lack that much confidence in your own product and brand, that you feel the need to trick customers, by creating a forgery, for the purpose of stealing web traffic from your competitors? Apparently so...
  17. I've been teaching a lot of new students lately, so haven't had time to dive into the course as much lately. Granted, I've been teaching the onsets in more of a TVS way now, and have noticed a big improvement on helping my student's get results even faster than before, not just that but pinpoint issues extremely fast too. For myself, it has given me a lot more control over my voice as well, but in ways I didn't know were even an issue. This is exactly the type of program I've been looking for, since I feel I'm already pretty advanced in my singing. I'm writing this just to say thank you for one thing in particular. After learning the lift up/pull back technique, using TVS coordination onsets, and even contract & release (although I overused it at first, ouch, lol!), my opened up my voice more than I thought possible. Before, I could easily sing a C5, even up to an E5 while belting, but only for about 30 minutes before feeling some fatigue. I could even belt up to a G#5 for a very short period. With the fatigue, I figured I was pushing too hard, but didn't know another way. So, with the new album being written, I simply started writing and altering my songs to stay lower in pitch than that. After practicing TVS methodology, I quickly realized just how much a belt is truly just head voice with TA being added. With this realization, I could suddenly control the volume and pressure of my belting much more than before. I can belt the E5 for hours now. To be clear, I know the difference in sensation and sound from a true belt vs. falsetto with twang or added harshness. I haven't ventured much above that, since I currently still fight the urge to push. The last time I belted the G#5, I was teaching a soprano a certain song, and didn't realize how high I was singing until it started hurting 15 minutes in. Then it was too late, I had pulled a muscle and it took me 3 months to recover. Needless to say, I'm overly cautious about belting above the E5 now. Not that I normally sing anything that calls for anything higher than that anyway. I'm very excited about this discovery, and I'm looking forward to the lesson on belting to refine it even more. Thank you for taking the pressure off my upper belt range. This will be extremely important as The Silent Still begins to tour our Rock Circus Masquerade production at the end of this year.

  20. I've been practicing and teaching TVS onsets for two weeks now. I've been teaching onsets for years, but not as consciously picked apart as the TVS onsets. Lately, I have noticed my throat musculature is getting sore much like other muscles do after a workout. This is particularly noticeable after and with messa di voce and contract & release onsets. I've tried to stay very conscious of unnecessary tension and pushing, especially since I teach up to five hours a day. My more serious students are noticing the same type of soreness in their throat musculature too, after a week of working with those two onsets. Is this normal when first starting to use these onsets? I imagine it is, since I'm likely working a muscle group an entirely different way than ever before. But want to be sure, since I'm pretty sure that I've never felt this before, even though I consider myself a more advanced singer. If it's normal, then I'm extremely excited to hear how my voice coordination and strength benefit from it!
  21. Hi all I'm Anthony from the UK. As a massive music fan I've learned to play a number of instruments, but have always struggled with improving my vocals, more specifically increasing my range. I love most styles of music but the ultimate dream for me would be to be able sing the high octane, high range belty rock/metal stuff! Yes I could transpose these songs to my comfort zone, but it's just nowhere near as impressive (And I wouldn't be pushing myself to my potential). After many, MANY months of trawling websites and YouTube instructional videos (including Robert's) I made the decision to follow the Four Pillars program. I have just purchased my own copy of TFPOS and am currently awaiting delivery. I am so excited and looking forward to finally demystifying the beast that is the singing voice! I also really like that there is an active community of Robert's students and look forward to becoming an active member!
  22. Don't let any other video or coach try to tell you that less information, less explanation, less features and less value in a vocal training program is a benefit to you. "Less is More" doesn't get you more benefit, or more of what you need, or more understanding about singing. It just gets you... Less!
  23. THE FOUR PILLARS OF SINGING THE INTEGRATED TRAINING ROUTINES Video Workout Demonstrations That Teach Singers How to Practice!

No tips or information, regardless of how good it might be, will do anything for you, if you do not take the time and energy to practice. If you are prepared to train and get serious about vocal training, The Four Pillars of Singing is a program you should take a serious look at. View full articles
