At least once a week, I audition and need a song. For our sessions, April not only helps me to switch from my actor’s brains to my singer’s brain, but also helps me to step up my confidence as a performerOvertime we have laid a foundation that supports me even when I can’t make it to her. I still use her vocal exercises every day. If you're in the industry, especially if you're an actor, there is no question about it: you should train with AprilVoiceCoach.She has an understanding of actors that need to sing beyond just singers’ training. She knows how to get actors to sing in a believable performance and be comfortable with it ."April has always been one our record label's most valued resources. She always gives our artists and guest artists the tools to maximize their voice quality and strength. Artists including Drew Patrick, Juliet B. Rock, Marc Antonelli, Nick Caster and many more, have tremendously benefited from her direction and coaching techniques. She has also created the "Making of an Artist" workshops to help move Singers/Recording Artists forward in their singing careers. I highly recommend April's work to everyone who takes their voice seriously and desires to build the kind of voice that can become a serious career."-David Longoria, Producer, Songwriter, Recording Artist (work with Sting, George Michael, Aretha Franklin, Annie Lennox, Cece Peniston, Andrae Crouch, Boys II Men and many more)
"April teaches solid vocal technique that bridges multiple styles. Her workshops prepare students to sing classical, musical theater and pop styles and has been helping us here at Burroughs for a number of years. I feel like April is especially effective at opening up the voice and getting students to access their full range with power and consistency. I consistently recommend her as a private teacher for my students and see results when they study with her. The JBHS VMA appreciates the support and partnership that April has initiated! -Brendan Jennings – Show Choir Director, John Burroughs High School, Burbank, CA
"I love to have April come in to my class to do workshops. The students get to hear what I’ve been telling them from another perspective and it revives the learning process. This is a nice change of pace for the girls especially, because they get to hear a voice similar to their own. One of April’s strengths is building confidence in young singers who are afraid to sing out by starting with the basics of breathing and opening up their voices. Before her workshops she always asks me asks me what each choir needs to work improve and designs the time she spends with them around that my wishes. The students love her enthusiasm and positive energy and many of them continue on to take private lessons."Tony Redmond Director, Luther Burbank Middle School Showchoir
“I've been singing for as long as I can remember. My love and passion for it is something I can only express through song. My dreams of singing became a reality when fate introduced me to April. I knew I loved to sing but April made me the singer I always dreamed of being. Hands down the best vocal coach there is! She took my voice to places I envied in other singers. Not only technically hitting those notes but she taught me to perform songs in a way that the audience would join in with me in feeling the lyrics. She introduced me to the professional world of singing involving me in projects and now I have pursued and experienced true success. Dreams come true with hard word dedication and great voice teachers!” -Priscilla Gallegos – Singer, Recording Artist Testimonial
“April did a great job giving my girls confidence in a workshop before an important competition. She helped them gain power and increase their volume while dancing, something we are always fighting. They still quote a couple of her “catchphrases” when they are rehearsing and need to “turn it up a notch”, whether in vocals or showmanship. By the way, they ended up with a first place at that competition!” -Lisa Lopez, Director, Walnut High School Choir Program
