He graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory as a student of Emil Danenberg and received a master's degree from the Juilliard School as a scholarship student of Beveridge Webster. Currently, he is on the faculties of Boston and Harvard universities and coordinates the chamber music programs at the Longy School of Music.
Glenn is a student at Harvard University and the New England Conservatory and is a top prize winner in regional competitions. She is the daughter of violinist Bayla Keyes, who has performed frequently at Marlboro with Merfeld.
