Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma September 27, 1956, Robert Stemmons began whistling at five. When legendary whistler Fred Lowery performed at his school, he was mesmerized and inspired. It was then he realized whistling is an excellent performing art.
Over the next twenty years, Robert worked hard, perfecting his instrument and teaching himself techniques, which would include vibrato, staccato, tremolo, warbling, harmony warbling, trilling, two-note harmony, and more. He additionally learned to make many realistic bird sounds. These are now trademarks of his concerts.
One afternoon in 1994, Robert was "whistling while he worked" in a school and was overheard by the music teacher. She asked him to perform as a guest in an upcoming show. In his first real performance, he did a blues number. The enthusiastic response received from that flagship performance encouraged him to follow his dream.
Robert would also like to acknowledge the World's Most Famous Whistler - the late Ronnie Ronalde - and his wonderful wife Rosemarie for their generous encouragement and support. To learn more about Ronnie watch this video!
