We’re a company driven by mission, aided by the latest technologies at every turn, and joined in a community of music. Founded by Alan Merriam in 1988, himself a professional musician, this company is built and run by musicians and music lovers at a deepest levels.

Not everyone at Nike runs half-marathons. Not everyone at Boeing flies. But every key employee at Merriam Music has music in their blood at a deep level. The CEO is a pro-level jazz pianist and rhythm aficionado. 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 sales team counts no less than 6 professional performers amongst them.

When your product is music, it’s a different kind of company when it’s built and run by musicians.
