The Meridee Winters school seeks out the best applicants possible, by directing our job postings to creative, enthusiastic musicians. On average, only ten percent of applicants even get an interview. The interview itself is structured to look for creativity, passion and teaching ability – in addition to musical skill.
Unlike our competitors, the Meridee Winters School of Music provides all of its teachers with a comprehensive training program to prepare them for their first lessons. Because of her background as a former schoolteacher, Meridee is adamant that all teachers learn sound educational techniques. In training sessions, Meridee and our faculty manager use experiential exercises and a 150 page exclusive MW method manual. Teachers learn the principles of the MW Method, as well as techniques such as stimulus variation and motivational strategies. Teachers also learn how to apply Meridee's original, leading edge material – from games to books – to their lessons.
