Glen teachingMerlyn’s Music specialises in one-on-one teaching that is tailored to the needs of the individual student. We fill an under-resourced niche in music teaching in the northeastern Melbourne area, but attract clientele from a broad territory.

We combine traditional technique and theory, with modern styles in music. Our students get the best of both musical worlds. Adult and young adult students get the benefit of learning contemporary theory via a course written by us, called “The Demented Seventh”. This is a practical hands-on approach to modern harmony, a MUST for the modern muso.

The course is also offered to traditional teachers wishing to upskill.

We teach piano, both AMEB and modern styles, violin and theory to students of all ages. You choose the style that is right for you, and we will have the right teacher for you.

We also use original pieces to teach modern playing styles such as blues, jazz, rock and country. We can supply backing tracks and personalised arrangements because of our skills as Publishers and Writers.

In early December, we hold our Student Concert at a local hall and all students and teachers are encouraged to perform for their friends and families.
