I am a professional teacher and flutist as well as an experienced performer. I have a Bachelor's degree in Flute performance from LSU and a Master's degree in Flute performance from the University of Tennessee. I have played with many professional ensembles including: Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony Chamber Orchestra
I also have extensive experience playing in wind ensembles at the university level. I have taught students from Kindergarten to college level with success, and I love teaching music to all ages and experience levels.
While at the University of Tennessee, I held a teaching assistantship where I successfully taught undergraduate flute students, improving their technique and their tone production each week.
I believe every student, regardless of age or level, has the ability to be a great musician, and I aim to find my students' unique strengths.

April is amazing! I knew from the moment I met her that she was going to be a great teacher! She made learning a new instrument so much fun. And she loves all kinds of music, so we also have had some really awesome conversations. I highly recommend her!

April is a great teacher! I took lessons with her when I was in high school, and she helped me with my honor band audition music. I learned how to breathe properly, how to double-tongue, and how to hold my flute so that my hands stopped cramping up. She is super supportive and really sweet.
