“Kyle has been my voice coach and mentor for about four years now. He not only has helped me improve my vocals, but has given me valuable advice, confidence, support, and the tools I need to help me grow as an artist. He has an incredible amount of drive and work ethic (which means he does not take any holidays!) and always makes sure to finish whatever he has started. I walk out of every lesson feeling inspired and motivated by him. Whenever we get together for a songwriting/recording session, he always brings such a positive attitude, focus, and attention to detail. I truly admire his creativity and talent and am so thankful for everything he has done for me, including cowriting my very first single, “No Return”.”

“Kyle Puccia is a pro. As a producer, he takes every work session & assesses the moment for the most productive way to use the available time & energy. And in each instance, you’re left with a creative product. As a vocalist, I appreciate Kyle’s ability to hone in on what’s getting in my way from time to time as well as find a solution to any vocal problem. You can tell Kyle is a vocalist himself – he’s been where you are & knows how to get you to where you need to be.

A great listener & motivator. A creative & inspiring collaborator. A talented musician. And a knowledgeable producer. He’s exactly what I was looking for to produce my first full length album, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s been my incredible pleasure working with Kyle on this project.”

-Kurtis Simmons (Singer, Actor)

“Kyle is not only my vocal coach but also my mentor. He has encouraged me with not only my singing but also my songwriting. He helps me develop my ideas and bring them to fruition. He is producing 3 of my original songs, and I am so excited, because he brought them to a whole new level of amazing! My songs, thanks to Kyle, are original, current and ready for the radio. He has made such a difference in my life as a young artist, because he believes in me.”

– Payton Hare (Age 17)

Kyle always has an optimistic, supportive and positive demeanor. This always leads to an unbelievably creative and imaginative partnership.”

-Kelly Hare (Actress, Singer)

“My sessions with Kyle are always productive and VERY enjoyable. He has helped me grow as a singer and has given me the skills and ability to go into vocal auditions with confidence. His knowledge of music is enlightening and his creativity and song writing skills have helped me make songs my own. Kyle is a great vocal coach.”

– Preston Mui (singer, dancer, stylist)

“Not only was Kyle Puccia my vocal coach for the past 4 months whilst I was in Los Angeles, he was a mentor. Kyle taught me many new ways to look at not only my singing, but also music in general, opening my mind to many new approaches and techniques. Kyle also helped me find different places in my voice that I’d been hiding away.

He helped me to achieve what I came to do as well as collaborating with me on acoustic reinventions of 3 songs from my debut album “Ascension”. He knew how to understand and interpret my creative ideas and I understood his. That’s what I loved most about my classes with Kyle.

Kyle’s teaching techniques are by far the best I have received in my 15 years of singing. I would highly recommend Kyle to anyone searching for the right coach or even just starting out. His love, dedication, and passion for his students and teaching is unbelievable. I can’t wait to continue working with him in the future. Thank you Kyle for everything!”

-Giulietta (International recording artist whose current single “Vertigo” from her debut album, Ascension, peaked at #16 on the Dance Billboard Charts)

“Kyle is a godsend. His confidence in me is contagious! He is so well versed in all styles of music and is excellent at building on the strengths of each individual student. I’ve always loved singing, but he has sparked a new passion inside of me and I leave every lesson feeling fullfilled and hungry for more! He doesn’t just train your voice, he trains your mind. I absolutely adore him. “

-Gina Starbuck (Singer, Actress – LA production of Wicked, Adam Lambert, Prince, Lindsay Lohan, Gavin DeGraw, Bring It On, America’s Got Talent, etc.)

“As a bass player, I always wanted to provide back-up vocals at my gigs. It wasn’t until I started taking vocal lessons from Kyle Puccia that I was able to achieve this. Kyle has given me the tools to sing while playing bass! I’m currently playing bass and singing back-up vocals for Orianthi.”

-Vivi Rama (Bass player for Orianthi, Will I Am, Jordin Sparks, Macy Gray, Nicole Scherzinger)

“I had worked with a few vocal coaches prior to Kyle however after working with him I quickly learned that he is the one I will stay with forever! He brings a driven energy and focus to each session yet displays a very sensitive approach to the specific needs of his student. He has helped instill in me the confidence to fully utilize and trust my talent. His dedication, passion, and honest thoughtfulness in working with me continue to inspire me on a daily basis and positively impact every aspect of my creative life.”

-Elysa Gomez (Singer, Actress – “Rock of Ages”/ LA & Las Vegas productions, Silverchair (“Young Modern” album) and Callbacks for In The Heights, and Rent)

“My biggest passion in life is doing musical theater, but I never had a voice to match the passion. Then I started taking voice lessons from Kyle. Kyle is an amazing teacher, gently guiding me to new levels of ability every week, celebrating each little victory and encouraging me even when I reached plateaus. He has taught me EVERYTHING from scratch – vibrato, support, placement, dynamics, head, chest, mix, belt. Combine his exceptional teaching with my hard work and determination, and I booked 10 musicals in the last few years! And that includes two quintessential starring roles as Maria in The Sound of Music and Eliza in My Fair Lady. Kyle has helped me realize my dreams.”

– Jennifer Richardson (actor, singer)

“Having Kyle Puccia as a vocal coach was one of the best career decisions I have ever made. He helped me recognize that I could actually sing for a career and has molded me into a confident songstress. I now am prepared for any audition that I am called on and visit him to add to my list of music. Because of his amazing direction and teaching skills I have had the opportunity to land gigs backup singing for various bands and have even had the opportunity to sing for some of his projects. I believe that in this business you have to be prepared for anything that comes your way and without Kyle I know that opportunities would have been missed. I continue to study with him and would recommend him to anyone that wanted to further their career by way of song.”

– Celina Nightengale (Dancer, Singer, Actress who has worked with Janet Jackson, Rosario Dawson, Wilmer Valderrama & Paula Deanda. Landed callbacks for shows such as Broadway’s In the Heights & West Side Story)
