About Luke

Luke Olsby is a music educator from the South-Eastern corner of North Dakota. He received his Bachelor of Music in Instrumental Music Education from North Dakota State University, working under many experienced professors including Associate Professor of Clarinet Dr. Cassie Keogh. Luke currently works as the band director for Madelia Public Schools, where he teaches band grades 5 through 12, as well as a percussion ensemble.

His performance work includes but is not limited to; The Wild Cat Jazz Band and Singers of North Dakota State College of Science, the North Dakota State University Wind Symphony and Gold Star Marching Band, the NDSU Clarinet Choir, two full solo recitals, The Lake Aggassiz Wind Symphony, The Minnesota River Valley Wind Ensemble, pit orchestras for the musicals Sound of Music, Guys and Dolls, and Wizard of Oz. Luke also had the honor of being a part of the first American ensemble to perform in the Spanish Hall of the Prague Castle during the summer of 2019.

Luke grew up in a town of less than 200 people and graduated with a class of less than 80. He understands the importance and challenge of providing the opportunity of private lessons to rural locations that often lack the access to musical resources larger towns often have. He hopes to provide all those interested with a quality music education.
