Being a great educator is a rare talent. Being a great performer is equally hard to find. Finding both in the same person is magical. The experience of regularly performing, and having the years of teaching exposure, helps our teachers to deliver true musical wisdom to our students.
Our search for teachers starts at the finest musical establishments in Canada. We directly recruit out of WLU, UWO, U of T, York, Humber, Queens, and McMaster. We’re the ONLY private music school in Canada permitted to do so, and getting teachers who have the right foundations is critical.
At the Merriam School of Music, the process of learning and training for teachers doesn’t stop. We regularly re-train our teachers in the latest educational best-practices, as well as constantly revise and update curriculum and lesson planning techniques. A Merriam-certified teacher is one of the most engaged and highly qualified in the industry.
