Our Team


Our Co-Founders

Lisa Michaels is passionate about the value of music and its benefits, having seen its impact on her own children – all saxophonists – and has never forgotten the fascination and fun of playing in the high school band – nor those band trips! She has spent more than two decades running her own businesses as a marketing consultant and serial entrepreneur. 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.


Peter VanDuzer has been actively engaged in the greater music community for many years. Helping music mentors plan activities at Band Camp is reminiscent of the many years Peter spent running summer camps in northern Ontario. In his current day job, Peter manages a national home improvement store and has been volunteering for children since 1985, including with the Lawson Foundation.

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