April Guthrie holds a Master’s Degree in Multi-Focus Cello Performance from the California Institute of the Arts and a BA in cello performance and environmental studies from Illinois Wesleyan University.

Her focus on contemporary music, performance art, and improvisation has brought her to work directly with Louis Andriessen (La voce), Muhal Richard Abrams, Vinny Golia, Joan LaBarbara, Mario Lavista, Stephen L. Mosko, David Rosenboom, James Tenney, Wadada Leo Smith, Christian Wolff, and John Zorn. She studied cello with Dr. Nina Gordon, Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick, and Rohan de Saram.

Guthrie’s musical style is also influenced by studies with the renowned Javanese composer Djoko Walujo WP–with whom she studies rebab and performed in the Kyai Dorodasih Gamelan on both cello and Javanese gamelan instruments.
