Dorian School of Music is a proud partner of Joe’s Mill and donates 25 cents from the proceeds of every lesson to their cause. We believe strongly in the wonderful work that they do and we invite you to be a supporter of this wonderful organization.

The Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library (Joe’s M.I.L.L.) has over 500 instruments and resources of all kinds including, but not limited to, guitars, keyboards, drums, horns, violins, percussion, exotic instruments, amplifiers, sheet music, and much more – and they’re all available to borrow … free of charge!
Roger Eccleston, the coordinator at Joe’s MILL, is happy to answer questions or help you find the right instrument to borrow. A skilled musician in his own right, Roger has vast experience in repairing, maintaining and restoring musical instruments of all kinds.

Run by volunteers, Joe’s MILL is a registered charity in Kingston, Ontario founded by musician, Wally High, in memory of his friend and bandmember, the late Joe Chithalen, who was a talented bass player in several well-known Kingston bands. Joe’s MILL operates in tribute to Joe’s love of music such that everyone who wants to can enjoy playing music as he did.


The Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library is happy to receive donations. Monetary donations are most welcome, however we will accept donations of any musical instruments, accessories, instrument repair tools, or even office supplies – in fact, most of our library inventory has been donated to us by many individuals and donations over the years. Joe’s MILL is a registered charity (#84662-6877-RR001) and a tax receipt will be issued for donations (or the value of the instrument) over $10. You can send us a donation via the PayPal button on the library’s own website, or you can mail us a cheque, or drop in to see us!
