“Kelly's expertise, patience, and experience have given me the success and confidence I've needed as a beginning instrumentalist. His joy of music and contagious enthusiasm have given me a love for bluegrass.”
“I have been to other "slow jams" before; these have not been helpful. This class was a really great introduction into actually learning how to jam and play with others.”
“I really enjoyed Kelly leading the class. He has so much experence in all aspects and has a great way of teaching. I thought everyone had a fun time and learned a great deal. This jam class opens our eyes and ears to the wonderful fun of playing with others.”
“Kelly is an excellent and organized teacher and the interaction with classmates was fun and a learning experience.”
“He put in the extra hours and we enjoyed the fun. This type of class is something I've been wishing for for quite a while. I more than feel I got a good value out of the deal.”
“Kelly is very exuberant, happy and fun to be with. He is a great jam leader and invites everyone to do solos. Kelly is extremely talented and his example draws us in and invites us to move forward. I never miss the group unless I can't possibly be there. It is an exciting journey with Kelly's leadership.”
