Buying an instrument

Buy an instrument VAT free:

In some instances your child's school may be able to purchase an instrument on your behalf enabling you to pay for the instrument VAT free.  Although this scheme is not new, regulations have relaxed enough to make it possible for schools to offer this service.  

However, this may not be a service that all schools offer, so you should always speak to the Head of Music/Music Coordinator first.

 

Or with an interest free loan:

Alternatively, you can purchase a musical instrument with an interest free loan via Dawson Music's 'Take it Away Scheme.  For full details visit the 'Take is away' website
