Do you play in a band or currently perform?

Alicia currently performs with the Alicia Pyle Quartet (APQ) which is a jazz-fusion group, and her 12-piece rock-orchestra, the APQHarmonic.



Alicia has been making music for over two decades, and she uniquely blurs the lines of genres including classical, jazz, pop/rock, funk, and world music to name a few. Her sound is the result of the conservatory meeting the real-world music industry that she loves pioneering. She studied at IPFW, performed as a soloist with various orchestras, including the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and she has won numerous competitions throughout her studies and career. She loves educating students of all ages, music interests, and skill levels, performing solo and with her bands, and investing in the community of music, musicians, and small businesses in Northeast Indiana. She also furthers her passion to make an imprint, often partnering to fund-raise with local non-profit arts-organizations, and globally, with her band donating a portion of album sales & raising awareness for the anti-human trafficking organization Destiny Rescue.
