Bandology is happy to be partnered with several local organizations that are as passionate about music as we are!
Opened in 1989, Kaos Music started in the world of music as a music technology store with the mission of helping people better understand the (then) complex world of digital music. Kaos has taught music lessons right from their very first day.
Kaos Music believes that it’s their responsibility to help encourage and teach new people to play the instruments that they sold. Beyond the responsibility in terms of education, the Kaos team has always loved the feeling they get when they see someone discovering the joy of making music themselves.
