We know that budgets are tight, so we keep our prices as competitive as possible without compromising on the quality of the products we supply. Most education establishments are entitled to ex VAT pricing, which is what appears within our catalogue, along with additional discounts for education establishments.

If you have a large order, ask us to quote, and we will give you the best price possible. We also offer a Price Match Promise*, where we will match or better any genuine UK quote*.

We have unrivalled experience in the development of music ICT facilities in schools around the world, and we will find the best solution to support the music curriculum using ICT within your school. We can help with the design and installation of facilities including ICT Suites, Recording Studios, Podcast or Radio Stations, Multi-Media Performance Areas and Theatres.

Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme

The Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AIPS) enables pupils in LEA schools and Academies to purchase instruments without paying VAT. This means that parents will only pay the discounted ex-VAT price quoted in the brochure**. To find out more about this scheme and how it can work for you, contact one of our Education Offices or see the back page of the catalogue.

International Schools

We work with schools all over the world providing musical instruments, expertise and design and installation consultation. We are happy to work with schools on an individual basis or with consolidators based in the UK or overseas to manage bulk consignments.
