- Teaches students:
- Ages 4+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I am a 22 year old percussionist, singer and songwriter with a graduate degree from Berklee College of Music. My love of music has evolved since age five and has transpired into both my passion and profession since then.
I have been playing drums and singing in paid positions from age 12 and have 8 years of teaching experience. My youngest student has been 4 years old and my oldest has been 45. I have also worked at the School of Rock in Seekonk and teach privately in students' homes. Recently, I performed at the Phoenix Awards, the Newport Center Samuel Adams Summer Event, and many other local venues including the Fete, the Dunkin Donuts Center, and the Met. I have also made appearances on WBRU, played with the band “NMY”, and recorded in studio sessions for musicians, including Morningbird and Sydney F.
I really enjoy working with students who are equally passionate about playing drumset or percussion (or both!) AND those who are new to music and want to learn more!
Thank you so much April for making this a great experience! I have taken lessons previously with two other teachers and just wasn't getting any further in my playing ability. April's style of teaching made all the difference. Given that I have been playing for a while, she wasn't afraid to push my limits, but always did so in an encouraging way. I have improved so much since then and have always had fun working with her!+ Read More
My daughter had an amazing lesson (again)! April is extremely talented and has a great energetic personality. She is a natural with kids and was able to make learning the basics fun. My daughter is always excited for her lessons with April and has learned a lot since starting two years ago. April is a great teacher and I highly recommend her to anyone wishing to play drums!+ Read More
