    At the age of 3 years, Rhonda began to show interest in the piano, playing such familiar tunes as “Away in a Manger” and various TV ad jingles by ear. She began piano lessons the next fall at the age of 4 and continued through all her primary and secondary school years. She completed a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Music Education from the University of NE-Lincoln in 1980 as a piano major and vocal minor.


    Rhonda has taught piano for nearly 30 years and, during that time, has also been certified by the New School of American Music, Chico, CA to teach adult piano workshops in chord style piano and play by ear applications. She has also functioned as accompanist and composer and currently has 7 compositions in the elementary to intermediate levels first published by Myklas Music Press, Denver, CO in the mid-90’s and now owned and published by Alfred Publishing Co. Among those titles are, Holiday Parade, Hound Dog Strut, Ocean Sunset, Get Away Rondo, Faded Poem, Sincerely Yours and Playful Pranks. The first, “Holiday Parade”, will be reappearing this spring in a new Alfred Publication entitled, “Myklas Contest Winners”. “Holiday Parade” will be included in Book 2 of the 4 book series. Rhonda has numerous other unpublished works, eight of which she is currently in the process of self publishing through the "More Than Music" business name. The title of the soon to be released, upper intermediate to early advanced collection of solos in Pop, Jazz and New Age styles is, “Every Thought of You”. She has plans for future publications at various levels from elementary through moderately advanced.

    Rhonda's teaching approach is broad based, encompassing a strong reading emphasis with chord and scale theory and usage, play by ear proficiency, exposure to every genre of piano literature, history, accompanying and/or composing at some level and performance twice a year for all students 18 and under.
