Kyle Landry was born the youngest of two children on March 8th, 1990 in Massachusetts, USA. He first started taking piano lessons in July 1998, at 8 years-old. Kyle immediately developed a passion for the instrument and soon discovered he had a natural ability for performing. At the age of 12, he began to learn and explore music on his own. It was this adventurous quality that sparked an interest in composing his own work.
Eager to share his abilities and musings with friends, Kyle made recordings of himself playing the piano, and decided to post videos of his performances online. Kyle found YouTube.com and used it to gain publicity for his compositions, improvisations, and arrangements of various Movie, Anime, and Game music.
Kyle officially became a part of YouTube, the video-hosting internet phenomenon, on March 31st, 2006 under the name kyle556. Despite any popular beliefs, the numerals following his name do not hold any significant value.
YouTube, undoubtedly, brought him the most fans and was the beginning of his online success as a pianist. Although most of his videos feature music from anime and video games, Kyle is currently studying classical piano under private instruction. Of all the classical pianist composers his favorite is Frédéric François Chopin.
Since then, Kyle has made nearly 300 videos, and has gained the respect and admiration of thousands of viewers, and currently has more than 100,000 subscribers.
