Robert Reale

Music Adjunct Faculty

Music and Performing Arts Professions

Shortly after graduating music school and several years touring in jazz and rock bands, Rob moved to New York in the mid-80’s where he responded to a demand for authentic, hi-end music for film and television and founded the production music library, 8118 Music. He gigged in clubs and pits off-Broadway and also began collaborating with his brother Willie creating musical theater. They are a winning combination: Rob provides the music, Willie, the words. They had several Off-Broadway successes before their production, A Year With Frog and Toad brought them to Broadway and garnered Rob a Tony nomination for Best Original Score Music.
