Online Music Lessons

The Merriam School of Music is changing how students connect with us. Our existing school will operate normally from our two campuses in Oakville and Vaughan, but for the rest of the world, our school is coming to you in a big, online way.

This isn’t Skype lessons. This isn’t pre-recorded content. This isn’t boring online courses.  

These are our teachers, and our courses, delivered in an interactive environment that’s light-years ahead of any other online music lesson.

Merriam Pianos will be unveiling new and innovative ways to shop for pianos within the coming weeks.

Our entire team is working tirelessly to bring you videos, photos, audio recordings, and product reviews of our entire selection of instruments, so that you can continue to receive the same detailed and objective piano information that we’re famous for – all in the comfort and safety of your home.

Frequently Asked Question

PIANO STORE

Yes. As of May 19th 2020, Merriam Piano Showrooms are back open for customers, with safety protocols in place. All customers are kindly asked to come to the showroom with a facial covering or mask. All staff members will be equipped with masks as well, and the showrooms and instruments will be disinfected several times per day. We will also be limiting the number of customers permitted in the showrooms at any given time.

Yes, in most situations we are able to deliver pianos to customers both in the GTA, and in more remote areas, most digital pianos as well.  Our response times for delivery windows may be lengthened right now, so please expect slightly longer wait times (i.e. 1 week vs. next day)

Yes. We are taking several measures to ensure that pianos delivered are safe to you. 

For digital pianos, we are offering one of two options: pre-assembly so our teams do not need to enter your home, or ‘curb drop-off’ in a sealed box, so you can bring the instrument into the home yourself.

For acoustic pianos, we are not performing our pre-delivery work at the moment, and are deferring that service until it is safe to perform it in your home. Therefore, every acoustic piano will still be wrapped in its original plastic (crates MUST be removed to load onto trucks). Delivery personnel will be disinfecting their hands and face prior to every delivery appointment, and no one who either has any symptoms, or has any family members who have travelled or have symptoms is allowed to go to work. These are the same precautions being taken at major banks right now, such as TD or RBC.

We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer our customers access to our piano specialists right now. They can be reached by phone, email, SMS, and can also connect with you through video conferencing to discuss all of our options with you. They’re available 7 days a week and are happy to spend as much time with you as you need to fully educate you on your options. And remember, there’s never any pressure or obligation to purchase.

 

Yes. We recognize that this is a challenging time for many, and there are several things we are doing to make a piano purchase as affordable as possible.

  • 0% financing is being offered on all instruments right now (O.A.C.)
  • Every school piano, demo, and used instrument has been discounted to make sure that we have prices and options for everyone
  • Manufacturers are working with us on new instruments as well, so that we can create buying opportunities on our most popular items

We have stock of our most popular models from Kawai, Roland, and Casio at the moment. Select instruments from W. Hoffmann and Bechstein are also available, however stock is limited.

MUSIC SCHOOL

We are not offering “in-person” lessons right now due to the shut-down, and the schoolboards’ decision to halt classes. Our existing student base will be starting their lessons again on March 29th in an online format, keeping their same teacher and time. All current students have been given information about what to expect over the coming weeks, and any further questions can be sent to care@merriammusic.com.

Yes!  Students interested in September 2020 classes can speak to our school advisors to find out teachers, rates, class times, and more.

Yes!  We are working around the clock to launch a brand-new digital music lesson platform. Skype / Facetime lessons have been around for a while, but we wanted to bring a different and more interactive experience to our students. Our priority at the moment is ensuring that this migration is as smooth and positive for our existing school families, but we will be offering the same service to other customers shortly. To learn more, or to reserve a spot with one of our teachers, please contact us at 647 417 1125, or write us at info@merriammusic.com
