During these workshops, you'll get a whole new perspective on navigating the neck of your guitar. I have a unique way of teaching basic music theory, chords, rhythm, and pentatonic scales. In just one 90-minute workshop, you'll see a difference in your rhythm AND lead guitar playing.

Özkan Bekiroglu – Izmir / Turkey

Thanks to the very well designed ‘Blues on Steroids’ instructive course material I’ve been able to read, listen, watch and practice with great clarity and success thanks to Kelly’s great listening and teaching skills combined with a philosophical humbleness and patience. At every session she brings her understanding to where I am musically and teaches me in a way that I  can understand. Right now after just six months of practicing under Kelly’s guidance I’m feeling the joy that I was looking for.

Deborah De Steno – Toledo, OH

"Kelly's approach to her teaching is simple and straight forward.  She is patient but tough, she keeps you on track. The Skype lessons I have with her enable me to make a connection with her so I am able better to understand what it is I need to do.  I am a very visual learner and  Skype is the way to go. She certainly has helped me not only to be a better guitar player but has helped me become a better guitar teacher to my students as well.  Thank you Kelly!”

Gord Moman – Calgary, Alberta

Kelly is my "GO TO" lady for online blues. blues/rock instruction.  She probably doesn't know this but, I kind of feel like I'm being taught by one of my guitar hero's. Her lessons are personalized, very well explained and target the areas that I need to work on to be a good blues player. Kelly gives me the tools to grow but she doesn't do my push-ups for me. I put in the practice time and follow her lead. Am I a better guitar player? Yes, I am and I'm excited to see how I'll be in the months to follow. Super excited!!!  Thanks Kelly.

Hey Kelly, I just want to take the time to thank you for your method of instruction. It works! I started seriously playing about four years ago...I took lessons for about 18 months...I learned a little about a lot, and it made no sense to me... you immediately assessed my abilities and frustration...provided thoughtful insight into my needs, and put me on a regimen that focused my practice efforts and provided me (for the first time) joy in playing...

After just a few lessons, I was able to make some sense out of the scale patterns and how to quickly identify which key I was playing in. Kelly’s well-placed metaphors and ability to apply real-world examples made all the difference in getting me over this hurdle, and has allowed me to bust out of my shell.

Jim Ecker – Cincinnati, OH

After trying for many months to teach myself the guitar, I started taking lessons from Kelly. A smart move.  She is an enthusiastic and supportive teacher. As a beginner on the guitar she took me through the fundamentals --scales, chords, and reading the fretboard.  As a teacher Kelly has the wonderful ability to listen and observe and then customize a lesson to help you.  Kelly is a great teacher who will make you love the guitar.

Brett – FL

"It's amazing how the internet can connect a small town guitar player to a down to earth seasoned pro and bring them together in a personal student/teacher environment online. I love the guitar even more now that I have direction rather than a boatload of DVD's and videos with varied techniques and teaching styles offered. Kelly has a way of knowing "exactly" where I want to go and the fastest way to get there. I have grown leaps and bounds in the last months compared to years of floundering and frustration and thoughts of actually giving up the best instrument on planet earth. What am I nuts?"  Kelly, Thanks for Everything!

John Vicory / Engineer / Covington, KY

I am amazed how much she has taught me in just 9 weeks. I have learned much more than just the basics of playing. I have learned all about tuning, changing strings, guitar maintenance and more. I take lessons at her home but when I can’t make it there she teaches me through Skype. With Kelly’s virtual classroom, I can see Kelly explain things as many times as I like then see her demonstrate what I’m trying to learn. If I have a question, I don’t have to send Kelly an email or wait until my next lesson–I can go to the virtual classroom and get my answer right now!”

"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!!!"

I have been looking forward to seeing this course since June, when it showed up on Facebook that Kelly was down at TrueFire. I am a big fan of this raucous "barroom" style of playing, it just feels like so much fun to play.

I confess, before this course I don’t know Kelly Richey. I’m guilty, because her is a real blast!  She teach me some tricks I don’t know before and a unique approach to the neck I found very, very helpful. I learned a huge vocabulary of technique, very well explained and demonstrated. She really teach me solid basis: from how to hold the pick (and how to make it disappear!) to better bending and vibrato…and much more!!!
