“I met Laura Kessler within my first few months of moving to Chicago. I performed in a student show at The Second City Training Center, and Laura was like a beacon on the horizon; her fresh approach to coaching a somewhat non-musical cast was close to miraculous – every member who had been shaky before became even more confident with her help. Over the next two years I have performed in more shows under her astute musical direction and have also studied as a private vocal student in her studio. Laura’s professionalism, business savvy, and most of all her unique musicianship has been nothing short of inspiring for me on my journey as a performer. I hope to work with her for many years to come.”
