It has been many years since I was in High School but I still have amazing memories of Mr Riegel. He is not just an excellent teacher but a most amazing human being. Very caring, very hardworking and very smart.
What I love about Riegel is that he's absolutely so humble. He's one of the greatest teachers I know but he always reminds us that he is human and makes mistakes just like us. It really earns our respect for him. I mean, he could have easily become a professional pianist or a composer or a professor or whatever else. But he became a high school teacher and he's so good at what he does. He inspires me.
One of the worlds best teachers!! He really cares about his students, great humor, and knows his music and how to conduct!! Very creative, hardworking and organized man.
I had Mr Riegel as a teacher over twenty years ago. I still remember him and the impact he had on me. He was firm and demanding, but only because he knew you were capable of delivering.
He has been a benefit to us students. I'm very glad to have been taught by him.
This great teacher went out of his way to offer his help with my music training. And I wasn't even in band... I was preparing for a RCM piano exam. Seriously, WHO does that anymore?!
Awsome! but he doest have to set his priorites, other than that he is the best teacher ever.NICE! (that one of his catch phrases)
great teacher, wonderful class, but the stories can be a little long winded. (entertaining to listen to though :D)
The best teacher I've ever had, without a doubt. He's a musical genious but he's very humble though he deserves all the recognition he recieves. He's one of those rare teachers that truly change your life and who is in teaching for all the right reasons.
he is the nicest guy who actually cares. the band is a family and hes the dad. i can talk to him about anything, and he doesnt expect band to be your life, and hes not interferring, he just genuinly cares. he probably is the first teacher at school and the last to leave
nosy and interfering...needs to get his priorities straight...DO NOT TAKE BAND!!!
hes a good teacher, although sometimes his speechs can get tiring
Mr. Riegel is one of the finest music teachers in the world today.
