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 live online music lesson.
