Campbell Kelly (A.MusA., B.Mus.Hons., M.Mus.R., K.Dip.) was born and raised on the coast of central Queensland where he grew up surrounded by music, often played by his father – a successful musician and entertainer. He received a scholarship to study classical piano at the Queensland Conservatorium in Brisbane and has since completed a Bachelor of Music (Hons) and a Masters of Music Research. During this time he had the opportunity to study piano with Oleg Stepanov, Daniel de Borah, and Mark Hooper. While studying Campbell also developed a passion for teaching and has subsequently taught piano extensively across Brisbane.
After his studies in Australia, Campbell was accepted to the Kodály Institute of the Franz Liszt Academy in Hungary where he completed a Diploma in Kodály Pedagogy with Piano Specialisation. While there he studied with world class pedagogues including musicianship classes with Katalin Körtvési, and piano with Anikó Novák.
In his spare time Campbell enjoys reading, composing, practicing, long distance running, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
