ABOUT US

How We Started

Merriam Music Inc. is family-owned and operated, headquartered just outside Toronto Canada in Oakville. Alan Merriam founded the school and store in 1988, and continues today as President and CEO. Merriam Music has two areas of focus: piano sales and music education.

Merriam’s piano division, known as Merriam Pianos, is, by volume, the largest in Canada, and amongst the Top 20 globally. There are currently three locations in the GTA – Oakville, Vaughan, and the newly renovated/purchased Robert Lowrey Showroom east of Midtown Toronto. Merriam’s education division, which includes Merriam High School, The Merriam School of Music, and the Merriam Music Online Academy, hosts 3000+ weekly students. It’s primary teaching facility, the Oakville campus, is the largest private music school facility in Canada by square footage and student population.

ABOUT US

What's Different

Merriam Music applies technology in all aspects of our business at levels – and in ways – that out-pace companies 3-5 times our size. This stems directly from Mr. Merriam’s own personal interest in constantly seeking out innovative ways to connect staff and customers with exciting new tools and technologies. This has led to a willingness to invest in software and equipment that has connected virtually all aspects of the business together, from the student and customer experience, to advertising and content, to the ‘backend’ of business and financial operations.

Examples of this are numerous; Merriam was the largest digital piano dealer of Roland pianos in the late 1980’s, introducing customers to MIDI technology for the first time, long before most homes even had personal computers. They were amongst the first in the education and instrument retail worlds to use digital CRM and digital financial ‘back-end’ technology from ACCPAC. And by the early 2000’s was investing close to 10% of its profits annually into digital marketing, SEO, and video production.

Since 2015, Merriam has invested in a fully customized financial backend system built on the Salesforce platform, a customized online lesson portal, and interface, and multiple websites and social/Youtube channels that lead our industry in terms of traffic and visibility. In fact, our primary domain, MerriamMusic.com is now ranked as one of the most authoritative music education and retail sites in the world.

If you’re intrigued by a music company that can talk APIs, Databases, Content Marketing, or Predictive Analytics as well as it can talk Mozart or the Beatles, we’d love to hear from you.

Merriam Music

ABOUT US

Music Company by Musicians

Business visionaries working hand-in-hand with highly skilled musicians is a rare synergy. It’s even rarer when you get both in one person. Mr. Merriam’s uncommon combination of talents lead him to build a company of extremely high discipline, solid financial footing, and leading offerings in two industries…all without compromising the culture of quality or musical integrity. As a result, every key member of the organization ranges from a high-level professional musician to those who believe deeply in the power of music. The director of operations can teach you about subdivision, key signatures, and tonality. Our IT director used to manage one of Toronto’s most famous recording studios. Our Marketing and Sales director is also a professional performer and producer. Our CFO is in a professional bell choir. Our front-line staff includes a composer, an EDM producer, a classical pianist, a jazz saxophonist, and a former touring drummer.

The mission of the company connects on a deep level to all who work here, regardless of whether you yourself are a musician, or simply a music lover. And it all starts with a simple understanding of what music can mean to someone, and its power to heal, unite, and transform.

ABOUT US

Built to Last, Poised for Growth

One of Merriam’s biggest appeals to employees – the ability to grow and sculpt their path to fit their strongest skills – is also the reason it’s poised for stable and sustained growth. The talent pool within the company crosses all age categories and departments, and constant mentorship is a trademark of daily life at Merriam.

As we approach 35 years in business, our opportunities and influence are global, with a whole new generation of leadership within the company.

We bring an enviable arsenal to this next phase of growth: an internal digital marketing team that outranks and outproduces companies 10x our size. A wealth of knowledge on all aspects of school management, course development, teacher training, student journey, and curriculum. A product lineup unmatched in either the piano business or the education industry. And most exciting of all, the investment, tools, and will to replicate our successes to the broader online world.
 
For prospective employees looking for stable, grounded, and responsive leadership, together with a culture of inclusion, transparency, and true service to our customers, we’d love to hear from you.
