Funding for Schools to Purchase Musical Equipment
Schools in the UK, that wish to purchase musical instruments and equipment can apply for funding of up to £2,000 through the Universal Music UK (formerly EMI) Sound Foundation's Instrument and/or Equipment Awards.
To date the Foundations has made awards to over two thousand schools, individual students and teachers improve their access to music through the purchase or upgrade of musical instruments and equipment. The funding must be made for music education that is beyond statutory national curriculum music teaching. The Foundation cannot fund retrospectively and schools are not eligible for financial assistance under this scheme if they have already purchased their instruments or if they do so before their application has been approved.
