Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme

The Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AIPS) is currently on hold and we are not processing any orders at this time. 

Through the Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AIPS) you will be able to purchase instruments without paying the VAT. You can only order an instrument through the scheme if your child has music lessons in school with a Cardiff County & Vale of Glamorgan Music Service (CCVGMS) teacher.
