April Duquette

I have been teaching choir at Arab Junior High School and have been the assistant director and accompanist at Arab High School since 2007. I began formal music instruction at age 7 with piano lessons and participated in both band and choir in middle and high school. I had the honor of being a part of the Snead State Community College Jazz Band and the Wesleyan Singers in college. Music has always been an important part of my life, and it is a privilege to teach students to enjoy music. I have served as church pianist in various churches since the age of 14 and currently serve as church pianist at Arab First Baptist Church. I have also enjoyed being a part of Arab Musical Theatre's production team since 2003 as an orchestra member or rehearsal accompanist.
