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
