How it works

Whole Note is a year-long program that supports and funds restricted-income youth through:
  • A series of 10 music lessons (instrument or voice) with accredited music teachers in the community to a maximum $250

  • Opportunities for students to perform with and be mentored by members of local music groups

  • The program also provides students with a set of professional photos with their instrument and a Whole Note T-shirt

Students eligible to apply for the Whole Note Program include:
  • Kamloops emerging musicians in Grade 6 through 11 who are involved in their school’s music program and have shown a firm commitment to music

  • Those who live in a household with a combined income $70,000 or less. Verification is required through Canada Revenue Agency Notice of Assessment for the previous 2 years for each guardian in the household (assessment is made on gross income)

  • Whole Note will consider applications from households with annual incomes of more than $70,000 that include clear description of need

  • Students who have shown a firm commitment to music, this commitment should be described in your application

  • Youth accepted into the program will be assisted with finding a suitable private teacher 


The Kamloops Music Collective (KMC) is a
non-profit organization that provides young musicians opportunities to learn, play and

perform music through a variety of programs,

and under the mentorship  of teachers and performers in the community.
