Riedel teaches Classical and Popular piano styles in
the Santa Rosa area.
Lessons include a well rounded education in piano
basics: reading, theory, technique, performance and
appreciation. He teaches all ages and all levels in
these styles and focuses on developing the music
fundamentals with his students.
Stephen's music background began in elementary
school with his studies in trumpet and continuing
through junior high. He began piano study in high
school and has been playing ever since, receiving a
degree from Santa Rosa Junior College and Sonoma
State University in music. He has studied with
teachers Marilyn Thompson, Anna Harriette Foshee,
Deanne Reeder, Casey Cameron and Jean Young.
He occasionally performs with singer Annemarie
Rosa, also from Sonoma State University. Stephen
believes in bringing out the inner musician in all
his students and believes that piano study is
important in developing that.
