Our Approach

What we do

KMS exists to provide the Houston area with quality musicians and to make the process of finding and hiring these musicians simple and seamless. Our clients include Houston area brides and grooms, local theatres, symphonies, area school district choir/band/orchestra/theatre directors, and individuals throughout Houston in need of fine musicians.

Additionally, we aim to serve our musicians by taking care of the business side of things, allowing them to focus on what they do best. Click here if you are interested in becoming a KMS musician.
