About Us

Bandology was willed into being by people who understand the multiple lifelong benefits that music provides.

United by common goals while participating in a high school music parent association, the co-founders were inspired to go beyond the classroom and into the community to help spread the love of music.


As a self-employed marketing consultant and serial entrepreneur, Lisa Michaels has never forgotten the fascination and fun of playing in the high school band – nor those band trips! Lisa is also a member of a local award-winning a capella chorus.

Lisa is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Bandology and can be reached at lisa@bandology.ca.

When not running operations at various locations of a national home improvement store, Peter VanDuzer can be found providing encouragement and counsel to local high school concert bands. Among the instruments to be found in his home are trombones, a double bass, a euphonium, a trumpet and a few more.

Peter is the Co-Founder and President of Bandology and can be reached at peter@bandology.ca.

As a former member of an award-winning high school wind ensemble, Erin Workman knows first-hand the feeling of accomplishment that comes from making music in a band community. She is currently studying to become a teacher at Brock University in Saint Catharines and looks for any opportunity to encourage young musicians.

Erin is our summer Education Coordinator and can be reached at erin@bandology.ca.
