The Instrument Assisted Purchase Scheme assists parents and students by waiving VAT when purchasing instruments.

In order to qualify, students must have at least two more terms of full-time education to complete and must either:

  • Be taught by a teacher currently employed via CMA (not by the school or on a private basis)

  • Regularly attend a CMA organised activity (orchestra, band etc.)
