Dr. Merryl Goldberg grew up inspired by music. Her parents wanted her to learn guitar, but she always had a soft spot in her heart for the saxophone and would sneak in lessons whenever possible. Eventually, her parents gave in, and after graduation, Merryl launched a 13-year career preforming with the Klezmer Conservatory Band. Soon she discovered her passion for music education and serves as professor at San Marcos State University in Southern California. Merryl provides training and lectures for other teachers to develop the curriculum for arts education. She is also the author of several text books including Arts Integration: Teaching Subject Matter through the Arts in Multicultural Settings.
