Originally from Three Hills, Alberta, Janna Olson holds degrees in church music and piano performance and a Masters in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Alberta where she studied with Janet Scott-Hoyt. She is also certified in Piano and Early Childhood Music with the Gordon Institute for Music Learning.
Performing, adjudicating, and giving workshops have provided diverse opportunities for her to share her music in Canada, the United States and Europe.

She enjoys playing chamber music and in her “off hours” spends time outdoors hiking, skiing and running.
