Upon completion of high school in Vancouver, Washington, she also graduated from the Classique Music Academy in 2009.  She continued her music education at Clark College in Vancouver, where she studied piano with Dr. Kathy Edsill-Charles. After transferring to Linfield College as a scholarship student, Reveka graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Performance on June 2nd, 2013. At Linfield, her piano teachers included Dr. Albert Kim and Dr. Jill Timmons, and she has studied composition with Dr. Richard Bourassa.

In addition, during 2012, she was the recipient of scholarships at Linfield including the Transfer Scholarship, Faith Powell Records, Dyke Memorial, Elliot Memorial, and General Restricted. Prior to Linfield, she received a full scholarship to Clark College as well as other scholarship awards. During her studies at both colleges, Reveka was a Dean's List student.

In addition, she has conducted a performance of her composition for concert band, "The Return to Winter," as well as S. Tvorum's Zaparozhski "Cossack" March, Johan Leopold Alice Nijs Czardas Anitscka, and selections from Mozart's Requiem. She has also arranged Gershwin's song from Porgy and Bess, It Ain't Necessarily So, for full orchestra, and has arranged compositions for her church band. As a composer, she has also written multiple works for solo piano, duo pianos, viola and piano, and brass quintet.
