April is a native of Albuquerque, NM and has lived in Phoenix and Tucson for the past 3 1/2 years. She is a professional actor in musical theatre as well as film and television. While on a soccer & music scholarship, she graduated from New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, NM with a B.A in Music Performance (piano & voice).

April started playing the piano at the age of 7 1/2 under the tutelage of Mary Jobe and Flora Russo and was a 1 st and 2nd place scholarship recipient at age 11 and 12. She also found an interest in composing and has written over 30 pieces of original music in which over half were completed between the ages of 12 & 20. She started singing at a young age but didn't start taking voice lessons until college.

In high school, at the request of her private teacher, she auditioned and became apart of the Young Razzcals Jazz Project directed by Dave Adams. They produced several records in which April was a vocalist on and were guest artists at the prestigious Telluride Jazz Festival.

At 16 she began teaching piano in high school taking over the younger students when her private piano instructor was unavailable and also taught sports at the YMCA. Since then she has had over 18 years of teaching experience with young children ages 3-17 as well as group adult classes. April was also an instructor with ABQ's The Growing Stage summer musical theatre camp.
