Hello everyone! I am April Barnes, and I am truly excited to be a part of the Beloved Community Co-op. I believe that God has wonderful plans for us all along this journey!
I am a lover of music and arts. I have been teaching private lessons in piano, voice and basic guitar throughout central Indiana for the past twenty-five years. I have been blessed to teach many children in homeschool co-ops for the past twelve years. I have conducted musical training and choral workshops throughout Indiana as well as California, Texas, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and most recently, Tennessee. I have taught choirs at North Central and Manual High Schools, and I am the former music director for the Indiana Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
I am presently the Minister of Music and Director of Music and Arts Program for New Zion Community Church and the musical director for Agape Performing Arts Theatrical Program.
Outside of teaching, I love spending time with my husband, Floyd, and our three sons, Eric, Joshua and Jonas and also serving and hanging out with my sorors of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
