About this Instructor
LESSON FEES: $60 for a 30-minute lesson $80 for a 45-minute lesson $95 for a 60-minute lesson IN-PERSON LESSON LOCATIONS: Burbank/Glendale (Home Studio) SUBJECTS: Flute, Vocals/Voice, Music Theory, Music Appreciation BILINGUAL IN: Spanish (Conversational) Merritt is a professional musician with a B.A. in Music and 24 years of music performance under her belt. In addition to teaching flute and voice, you’ll find her in the recording studio (where she writes her own songs) or leading music at her church. You can count on Merritt for lessons that encourage and challenge students to grow in their skills while reinforcing a love and joy of music. Merritt’s experience enables her to teach students the necessary foundations of music theory, sight reading and the art of public performance in all its shapes and sizes. In her spare time, you’ll find Merritt in the tidepools of Malibu hunting for beautiful seashells, buying more plants than she has room for, and trying to convince her husband their lives won’t be complete without a puppy. Testimonials: TESTIMONIALS “Merritt is an exceptional and outstanding voice trainer! She teaches in a fun and engaging way. She’s highly organized and follows up each lesson with personalized feedback. My 6 year old daughter is thrilled to have as a teacher, and always looks forward to their time together. In addition to teaching my daughter how to sing, Merritt inspires her to carry herself with poise, and that translates to her being more confident as a singer and as the princess she is. Thank you so much Merritt!” — Chinny, mother of student “Merritt is a very talented, knowledgeable and amazing person to work with. I’ve been singing & performing for over 20 years and she is the best teacher I’ve ever had. I truly appreciate her priorities to make sure I’m singing in a way that doesn’t strain or hurt my voice. On top of that my family members were shocked at how much my voice has grown and said my singing is the best it’s ever been. I’m so thankful I started taking lessons with her. If you listen to her and follow what she says, you will see yourself improve beyond what you thought was possible. I know because that’s what she’s done for me.” -Kaylah, adult student
