Get the Inside Scoop

Allison Wall Piano, Voice

As the daughter of a piano teacher, Allison Wall grew up in Wichita and she also grew up in music, playing piano and singing from a young age. In high school, she performed in choir and musicals, and attended Interlochen Arts Camp as a member of the World Youth Honors Choir.

Allison received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Music with a Vocal Music emphasis from Friends University. While at Friends, Allison began teaching private music lessons and participated in a number of musicals and choirs, including the Singing Quakers, and sang the lead in Bizet’s one-act opera Doctor Miracle.

After college, Allison enjoyed singing with the Wichita Chamber Chorale. She moved to the Twin Cities for two years to study in a graduate program, where she continued to teach voice and piano lessons. She is excited to be teaching in Wichita again!

Allison believes that learning should be a process of discovery and play, a collaboration between teacher and students in which students are encouraged to ask questions and experiment. She loves exploring music with growing voice and piano students, as they become mature musicians and artists, and ultimately, people.

Billy Bloomquist Guitar, Piano, Voice

Picking up a guitar for the first at the age of 16, Billy had no idea that learning the theories and expressions of music would soon become much more than a hobby.  It only took a couple years of exploring the possibilities of songwriting to decide to study music at the university level.  Now he’s a Friends graduate with a myriad of instrumental, vocal, and compositional skills.

Billy’s always believed that if you understand the theories and “rules” of music, you are most equipped to break those rules when desired, and to further your learning on an individual basis. He has taken that to heart and always been committed to expanding his understanding of genre and application of technique. At any given time, you might be able to find him performing in local coffee shops, recording his own music at his home studio, composing piano pieces, teaching private lessons, playing bass for The Radio Soul, and generally collecting life experiences in order to ultimately express them in song.

Emily Strom Piano, Voice

After spending a year traveling the state and country as Miss Kansas 2008, Emily went back to WSU, graduating with a jazz piano degree.

Upon graduating, Emily took a couple years to explore a television career but decided music was where her heart had been all along. She is currently pursuing a career as a full-time musician and working on creating a debut (due to be released October 2014) comprised of original songs.
