Welcome to the Mid-Island Branch of the BC Music Teachers’ Association (BCRMTA) based in Nanaimo on beautiful Vancouver Island. Founded in 1965, our non-profit organization has enriched lives through music by promoting the teaching, learning and performance of music to students of all ages and stages.

Our region encompasses the Mid-Island area south to Duncan, north to Oceanside (Nanoose/Parksville/Qualicum Beach), west to Port Alberni, and east to Lasqueti and Gabriola Islands.

We provide scholarships and awards, as well as enrichment activities for students such as the Joan Gosselin Music Writing Competition, the Young Artist Tour, and the BC Piano Competition. Performance opportunities are offered through public and studio recitals, Canada Music Week Celebration, community events, competitions, masterclasses, and the Upper Island Music Festival.
