As an educator, Dr. Olsen rises to the level of an American Treasure. His teaching capability is on par with Nadia Boulanger (with whom he studied). The achievements (music and non-music) of his students are a matter of record. If you have the opportunity to study with him, grab it!

Loran Olsen was my high school piano teacher from 1971-1974. To this day he remains a close mentor and a valued friend. The impact from studying with him has gone far beyond those few years of study. Loran Olsen is a world-class teacher, scholar, and a widely known adjudicator, with accomplished former students throughout the country. He advised me all through my college years and was helpful in introducing me to other world-class teachers that I had the good furtune to also coach with. I, and I know that others who have studied with him, model my teaching philosophy and approach after Dr. Olsen's, and it produces an abundance of results. I owe him the successes of my teaching and performing career many times over.

I studied with Dr. Loran Olsen from 1987-1991 at Washington State University. I was 34 years old and Dr. Olsen was my 7th piano teacher. Of all my wonderful teachers, Dr. Olsen was the one who brought out the best in me as a piano teacher. Not one day goes by that I don't quote or share a 'magical' teaching skill that he taught me. He gave me the best set of teaching tools and I am forever grateful to this patient, kind, insightful, and fabulous teacher and person. When I think of him and how he improved my technique, I would say that," he gave me my wings to fly across that keys and take flight". I wouldn't be the teacher that I am today without his instruction. God Bless Loran Olsen.
