Instruments are loaned free of charge to schools who, in turn, loan them free of charge to pupils. An instrument can be loaned for up to three years.
Once a child’s interest is established, parents are encouraged to buy pupils their own instruments.
AIPS (The Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme) supports schools to buy weekly tuition instruments and sell them to parents with no VAT – a real saving.
Instruments are expensive and valuable. We expect learners to treat instruments with respect and in accordance with their tutor’s instructions.
