Live. Laugh. Laura.

I was born and raised in La La Land, where every day was fun and summery.

Under these sunshine-y conditions, I blossomed into a pianist

who got to perform internationally from a very young age.

Since my parents worked long hours, I spent a lot of time with my "babysitters"—

Mary Poppins and Maria von Trapp—and it wasn't long before I was singing everywhere I went. I then had two choices: to become a veterinarian in California or

to move to NYC to pursue a wild career in the arts. I chose the latter.

But I still have two dogs.

I also love to teach, and I founded Laura Snell Music Studio in Manhattan

to train the next generation of pianists, singers, and music-lovers.

As Executive Director of SoHo Shakespeare Company, 
I get to create, produce, and perform every day in NYC and LA.

Masters degree in Acting from Harvard / ART / Moscow Art Theatre
