In 1999 Jessica Reddell received a Bachelor’s of Music in Classical Piano Performance from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. While there she studied Classical Piano with Dr. Rosalina Sackstien, Jazz Piano with Jeff Laibson and Organ with Dr. Warren Canfield.
Upon graduation Ms. Reddell devoted herself to composing full-time and founded Southern Oracle, an avant-garde piano rock band which performed extensively throughout Miami and South Florida. In 2002 she left Miami for San Francisco to pursue teaching full-time in a world-class city where both traditional and contemporary music and arts thrive.
Since then she has been teaching privately in San Francisco and until 2014 had been the Organist for St. John’s Oratory, Fisherman’s Memorial Chapel on Fisherman’s Wharf where she specialized in accompanying Gregorian Chant. From 2014-2016 she was the Director of Music at Bethany Presbyterian Church in San Bruno. After taking a year off from church music, Jessica found herself called back to Bethany to assist in sacred music making.
Ms. Reddell is an active member of the Music Teachers’ Association of California and served on the Board of Directors as Membership Secretary for the 2012-2013 academic year.
