Robert RellyAdvanced Teacher Olathe, KS, United States
I’ve had the pleasure of playing music worldwide over the past 32 years. Starting with private lessons as a boy, I continued study at Virginia Tech under jazz great Joe Kennedy. I went on to play in many bands, ensembles, world tours and on various recordings. I’ve been blessed to play in venues ranging from Radio City Music Hall, to an outdoor performance for 120,000, to a broadcast for 20 million viewers on German National Television. I’ve played in jazz bands, blues bands, rock bands and led worship in churches around the Midwest. I’ve taught piano, bass and guitar over the past 2 decades. Recently, I’ve worked as a recording engineer, played guitar with the band Waking Lucy and played bass for the Bluesmen featuring singing legend Eugene Smiley. I am thrilled to now be offering Simply Music piano lessons as I feel they have what it takes to impart a life-long love of music. I love my students and am humbled by the great honor I have of working with them.
