Overview

I began playing guitar when I was 12 years old and never looked back. Music has always been a part of my life and I love sharing that joy with others.
I started singing at church and in school (in various choirs and ensembles). I later attended college on a Vocal Scholarship and majored in Music/Education for 2 years while playing in a 4-piece rock band as the lead-singer/guitarist.
While piano was my first instrument that I started lessons on when I was 8 yrs old, I moved onto guitar and then bass guitar shortly after (and I continued with mandolin, dulcimer, drums, ukulele & singing).
I love all music, nearly every genera there is; old and new. So if there's a certain type of music you want to master...I'm you're girl.

I hope to be able to help you through your musical journey, the way so many have helped me through mine.

This was my first online class and I was very (pleasantly) surprised at how well it worked! I was able to see which strings she was pressing and follow along with her (albeit not nearly as well!). It was just like having a live instructor with me. Can't wait til our next lesson to see if my homework actually helped me improve! Thanks April!

April is very friendly, knowledgeable and adjusts her lesson to your needs and what you are interested in learning. She responds to any extra questions I might throw at her between classes. She also created a few additional videos that she sent me to watch her exact fingers movements s and strum patterns. This is only.my second lesson and we are alreadyworking on a new song and fingerpicking as well as mute strumming. Just practice a lot between lessons and you will do well and move forward quickly.

teaching at it's best!

April is brilliant. She took the time to explain every question I had thoroughly and then some. She's very funny and made the session very pleasant for my boyfriend and I. It is not hard to see the heart she has for music and people, especially because she is encouraging. I'm a left-handed beginner and although I had my advanced left-handed boyfriend playing next to me, she showed us how to play at our separate experience levels.So, if you are looking to learn some valuable information and simply have a good time playing music, do it with April. You won't be disappointed!
