The school has become one of the top music business programs in the country, a fact Shelly quickly credits his predecessors, including Jim Progris and Rey Sanchez. Shelly has been playing music since he was four years old and enjoyed a successful career as a studio musician, songwriter and composer for the film and television industries. He began teaching in 1979 and later led the jazz program at the University of Southern California where he remained for 16 years before moving to Florida in 2007 to join the faculty at the University of Miami.
