April is a performer and teacher with over 25 years of experience. Piano was her first instrument - age 7. After discovering rock & roll around the age of 11, she turned her attention to guitar and bass. A lark voice lesson led her to her high school’s choir. Soon after, she was in NJ’s state and regional choirs. She went on to major in Music Education at Rowan University, graduating with honors.

April’s performing credits are many. She has been a paid chorister at St. Luke and the Epiphany and St. Mark’s Episcopal churches in Philadelphia. Her bass and guitar credits are numerous, having played in the pit bands for many colleges, theater groups, and the United States Army.

She has taught for Middletown Music/ Music & Arts since 2004, and has been a substitute teacher in the Appoquinimink School District since 2012.
