“What makes a great teacher? Someone who can assess the strengths and weaknesses of a student alongside celebrating each individual’s personality and potential. Ms. Rike transformed my daughter’s violin playing from a struggle and a battle to a weekly journey of joy, hard work, inspiration and high standards. This happened because Ms. Rike has embraced the whole of my daughter and has the wisdom to see her strengths and weaknesses, while pushing and propelling her forward. She manages to achieve the ultimate balance of caring for the individual without losing sight of the need to have very high standards to become an excellent violinist and musician. I am truly grateful that Ms. Rike is front-and-center in my daughter’s journey as a violinist.”

Dr. P. (parent of current student)

“Dear Ms. Rike,

Thank you so much for all of your help, patience, effort (and more) that you have put into my lessons with you this year. I will always remember how you have shown me such love in these years even when I was being annoying beyond belief. Thank you, thank you! Without you, I would be nowhere, nothing, and no one in the musical world.”

Many kind regards, S. (current student)
