"I have been working with Richie for one year. I have worked with other teachers, and there is no comparison. Richie is a great player and a great teacher (which is a rare combination). He has a program and a process that builds from the ground up on how to improvise without the use of memorized licks. His method is the most sensible way to learn how to improvise from within. I wish I had found Richie 10 years ago."
