Engaging, successful education depends as much on what happens inside the classroom, as what happens outside the classroom. An undisputed factor in Merriam’s success has been the sheer breadth and quantity of extra-curricular activities which our students and families are encouraged to participate in.

About Our Enrollment & Placements Department
At Merriam School of Music, our primary goal with every student is to unleash the power of music within themselves, so that they can participate with and enjoy music for life. A big part of getting the formula right is identifying what programs and teachers will help you to reach your goals.
Our Enrollment & Placements Department is a highly trained team of musicians who share a passion for people and their success. They serve four main roles:
- to meet and speak with each and every person who enters the school
- to help determine what teacher might be best
- to explore which combination of courses and programs will best match with the goals and objectives of the family
- to be the main information source on how to become a part of the Merriam School of Music

Merriam Music: Toronto’s Top-Rated School of Music
Merriam’s internationally-acclaimed school of music features one of the most celebrated musical curriculum systems in the world: The Keyfest Signature Group Program. Studies have shown a success rate of nearly 90% for the majority of young learners ages 4 – 10 involved in the Keyfest curriculum. For further enrichment, we’ve developed more than 13 separate programs to help our young people truly unleash the power of music within themselves.
Merriam’s programming for students in their teens is highly innovative, technology-driven, and broad-based. We offer the most exclusive and jaw-dropping performance opportunities, professional industry coaches, and a full spectrum of genres to choose from. Find out why our teen programs have grown by more than 70% in just the last 5 years, and are consistently reviewed as the best.
Learning a new instrument is on almost everyone’s “bucket” list, yet most adults are intimidated by the idea of lessons, much less attending a music school. At Merriam’s music school, we have nearly 1000 adult music students, and for each and every one we’ve created a positive, relaxed, and rewarding experience. Come and explore your love of music with us today, and let us unleash the power of music inside you!
