Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme

The Suffolk County Music Service (SCMS) is able to offer instruments for sale to pupils, which may either be VAT free or benefit from educational discount. These savings can be passed on to the pupils if certain conditions are met (see below*).

The scheme only applies to new instruments. It is not possible to purchase second-hand instruments through the scheme, regardless of their condition/age.
