The Merlin Academy of Traditional Music Ltd

Summer Music Camp 2020

Registration now open, limited spaces available

The Merlin Academy

The Merlin Music Academy was founded in 2011 and is based in the very attractive Borders town of Melrose. We teach traditional folk, blues and acoustic music to all ages, kids and adults ranging from absolute beginners to intermediate/advanced within our Academy in Melrose and Studio in North Berwick.  We have over 10 tutors working at the Academy all of whom are fully PVG registered. We are extremely passionate about offering first class tuition within a friendly, supportive and very importantly fun environment.   We believe that music tuition should be available to everyone with an interest in music and you are never too old to learn!

By having all of our teaching in one building this allows us to ensure that all of our students and tutors very much feel a big part of the Merlin community and family. Moving two buildings into one will allow us to build on the sense of community here at Merlin Academy of Traditional Music and create a lively hub of music, friendship and, of course, a safe learning space.
The Office/Reception still look forward to welcoming you and will also be based within Palma Place as well as a small waiting space where you will be able to get a cup of tea/coffee.    

The Merlin Music Team

We have a great team of people working hard at the Academy behind the scenes.  Bridget and Linda can be found in the Merlin Office. They are responsible for bookings, billing, marketing and keeping all the students informed of what is happening.
