Instructor Merlijn van Veen

After studying studio recording and jazz piano at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, Merlijn started his career at the Dutch Broadcast Company doing sound engineering for TV shows such as “Big Brother.” He also worked 10 years at Harlekijn Holland where he annually mixed more than 150 live performances throughout Europe and internationally before deciding to start his own education program in gratitude for the willingness of others to share their knowledge and experience.

He has developed several calculators to aide in the process of teaching including the Subwoofer Array Designer. Until recently, he was also principal teacher for sound reinforcement at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague for the “Art of Sound” under- and post-graduate program.

Merlijn is moderator of the “test & measurement” board of the ProSoundWeb LAB forums. He provided ongoing aid and support to the 3rd edition of Bob McCarthy’s book “Sound Systems: Design & Optimization.” Merlijn’s articles are published regularly in Live Sound International magazine.

Based in Germany, Merlijn joined Meyer Sound’s global education leadership team in 2018. Merlijn hosts education webinars and roundtable discussions as well as does design work.
