He is an adjunct professor of Jazz Studies at Rhode Island College, and is also a very active jazz clinician, conducting workshops and master classes through the U.S. and abroad.

Bobby Floyd’s talent has launched him into a very rewarding career, making him one of the favorite, first-call pianists/organists for many well known artists. He has traveled the world accompanying Ray Charles on piano and organ, and currently makes guest appearances with some of the most distinguished orchestras, including The Boston Pops, The Rochester Philharmonic, and The Detroit Symphony.
