Meet our board members
We are a registered charity in Kingston, Ontario founded by musician, Wally High, in memory of his friend and band member, the late Joe Chithalen, who was a talented bass player in several well-known Kingston bands. Joe’s M.I.L.L. operates in tribute to Joe’s love of music, so that anyone who wants to can enjoy playing music as much as he did.
Donate to The M.I.L.L.
Joe’s Musical Instrument Lending Library (Joe’s M.I.L.L) is a not-for-profit organization and registered charity that helps to spread the joy of music in the Kingston community, promote music education,
and make it accessible for all.
The cost of instruments can often be a barrier to music education, but through our generous donors, Joe’s M.I.L.L is able to loan instruments to community members of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds.
