Hi, all! My name is April and I'm super excited for the opportunity to get to work with you. I graduated from St. Norbert College with a Bachelors of Music in Music Education. I have been teaching music and theatre since 2008, where I have had the fortunate opportunity to develop many performing arts programs throughout various schools, teach privately, manage and direct theatre productions, and perform locally and internationally. I'm very outgoing and energetic and tailor my teaching to the individual and their particular needs / desires. Every student comes in with a different ability level and goal set, in lessons we will make sure to grow your ability, have fun, and help you reach your goals.
