Helped me get through some very difficult family issues. My theater experience under her wing saved me.
Ms Olanoff was a wonderful and inspiriting music teacher. After many decades, I still remember her as if it was yesterday.
She is most responsible for jump-starting the acting career of Jimmy Smits (LA Law and NYPD Blue)
Back in the late fifties, she turned people like Marty Wolff and Linda November into super stars.
She had more influence on my life then any teacher that I ever had. When I became an adult, she became a friend to me and my family. I miss her very much.
