Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme
The Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme allows students to buy instruments without having to pay UK VAT (20%). This means that when buying an instrument for £1500 you could save over £220.
First contact your child’s teacher for advice on selection of an instrument and then the Music Service office (phone 0161 770 5660) to arrange a quote and order the instrument.
