"Studying with Kelly Richey has been one of the major highlights of my guitar playing career. She has helped me improve my playing by leaps and bounds in a very short period of time. She has a vast musical knowledge from exercises to build technique, to soloing concepts, and can even help build your repertoire. One of the best decisions I have made in regards to my playing is signing up for lessons with Kelly. My advice to ANY guitarist looking to expand their playing is to sign up NOW!!!"

"Kelly Richey is one of the most dynamic and amazingly skilled musicians I've ever seen, male or female! She was easy to work with when we booked her to play for a concert in our town. Everything went smoothly. Kelly and her band are true professionals--no prima donna syndrome to deal with regarding meals and other misc components of their contract--a sheer delight. When our friends were done seeing and hearing Kelly's band perform, including seeing Kelly play her guitar behind her back, they were absolutely ecstatic. No one can rock an electric blues guitar like Kelly can! I highly recommend her to any blues music enthusiast looking to book a gig or a private party! Thanks, Kelly!"
