Hello there!  I'm so happy you're here!

My name is Kay Jay Olson, and I'm a musician, educator, composer and performer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  I've been a part of this community for over five years.  

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse with my Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre  Performance, and then lived out in DC for a year where I got a secondary certificate in Theatre Performance from The Theatre Lab School of Dramatic Arts.    After I moved to the Twin Cities in 2016, I was accepted to the Master of Arts - Education program at Augsburg University.  I graduated with my Masters of Music Education and Teaching Artistry during the tumultuous 2020 - and threw myself into teaching lessons and writing music.  

As a composer and performer, I am driven by what interests me most - discussion, social change, queer issues, tears and laughter.   I want to make and create work that offer opportunities to those who may not otherwise have them, and develop better systems for access.   I am always on the look out for people to collaborate with - so join the mailing list and reach out!  

Music Education and Lessons

As an educator, I take a collaborative approach with a student to meet their specific goals - what is it that you want to learn to do better?  Are you casually introducing music as a hobby, revisiting skills from your past, looking to get serious...?  We can help you reach that goal.    

I offer lessons in Voice/Vocal Coaching, Piano, Ukulele, Guitar and Digital Music/Composition.
