So, what does ‘April Cello’ (solo electric cello with looper) sound like, you might be asking? Thanks to the miracle of looping technology, I am able to layer multiple tracks of cello sound to create a full and lush string sound. Think the fullness and versatility of a string quartet in one neat, petite package!

What People Say About Me

Belinda, Bride

“April played the cello at our wedding ceremony and during the after-ceremony canapes, and she was amazing! So many of our guests commented on how beautiful her music is – she really set a beautiful scene. April was also a pleasure to deal with throughout the wedding planning process, and accommodated our every need, including learning a new song at my husband’s request! We cannot recommend her highly enough!!”

Caren, Bride

“April was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. April was super engaging and energetic from the first contact we had with her to organise for her to play on our wedding day to the thank you email. We had SOOOOO many guests tell us the best part of the wedding was hearing April play and that she was able to bring so much warmth and love to the music. We wanted something different and memorable and we could not have found a perfect way to have this come true. Thank you April for making our special day even more special, we would recommend you a hundred times over!

Tamara, Bride

“April was a delight to work with for our wedding at Jaspers Berry in January 2022! She has an extensive song list to choose from and was more than happy to learn an additional song at our request. Being a pianist as well, April was happy to pre-record some piano accompaniment to our selections so we would have the effect we were after. April knew the venue well so we trusted the set-up would go smoothly. April played beautifully on the day – I had more than a few guests comment on how the live cello added an extra special touch to the ceremony. Thank you, April! You made my vision come true on the day and were an absolute pleasure to work with :)”

Louis & Sam, Groom & Groom

“April performed at my wedding was fantastic, her voice and music filled the venue, a pavilion. April made the planning and music selection a breeze she played a wide contemporary selection which was great. She was super professional at our lgbt wedding. The first thing our guests said when we met them after the ceremony was how amazing she was. She was a good sport and did an amazing cover of Rick Astley’s ‘Never gonna give you up’ as our outro. April helped to make our day a success :-)”

Nina, Bride
