Instrument Purchase Scheme Thinking about buying instead of hiring? Once your child is registered with Durham Music Service you can buy an instrument through our instrument purchase scheme – you will not pay VAT and prices are heavily discounted. Unfortunately, this excludes drum kits. We do not make a profit from this scheme and the instrument models available have been tried by our teachers. Your child’s teacher can offer advice on a suitable instrument and give you details about the scheme. If you would like to know more information about prices or to request a call from your child's visiting Durham Music Service teacher please contact us.
