We believe in the transformative power of school music.
Meyer Music is dedicated to ensuring that teachers and students have what they need to effectively teach and successfully learn.
Full Program Support
Our experienced educational representatives make regular and reliable weekly visits to directors in all sorts of school settings, from large to small, rural to urban, and both public and private.
Our educational representatives provide instruments, pick up repairs, supply accessories, print music, educational aids, as well as the latest information on music education products and services. We deliver personalized assistance and product support to help simplify the busy workday for directors in the short run and fosters student participation in music programs in the long run.
A Successful Start for Students
In order to support the instrument fitting process for beginners, we draw upon a wide pool of experienced instrument “fitters” to help with this crucial process on the dates and times that are best for the teachers.
We also support the fitting process by loaning groups of instruments and supplies to teachers throughout the area. We also provide complimentary supplies and teaching materials, including music folders, practice records, fingering charts, and instrument care brochures.
Year-long Clinician Support
In addition to our educational representatives, we employ retired, highly-respected directors as full-time clinicians to visit programs for sectionals and clinic support.
We are pleased to offer the support of the following clinician to our teachers. Please speak with your Meyer Ed Rep to schedule a classroom visit.
