"Kilty cares so deeply for his students and their success. He is able to challenge actors and push them to their full potential, while also encouraging them, and reminding them of their strengths. Kilty is so fun, that time just flies by, and I always leave feeling like I've made great strides with my pieces."

"I have known Kilty Reidy as a valued colleague and dear friend for over 20 years and give him the highest recommendation as a performer and coach. Mr. Reidy is a gifted teacher, as I have witnessed his coaching in master classes at UNC-Chapel Hill. He connects with young artists very well, with a no-nonsense approach that is couched in a benevolent spirit and infectious personality. Mr. Reidy knows his craft and is able to share that knowledge freely with everyone he encounters."
