Music Tuition Vouchers

Instrumental Tuition Vouchers are available to help with the cost of music tuition and other musical activities provided through Colchester Academy

Am I Entitled to Instrumental Tuition Vouchers?

If you are currently in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance, Income Support or Working Tax Credit/Child Tax Credit (subject to certain criteria), then you may be entitled to and should apply for Instrumental Tuition Vouchers. Discretionary awards are also made to people in receipt of equivalent benefits.

Am I guaranteed to receive the vouchers, so long I am receiving one of those benefits?

Essex Music Hub have allocated an amount of money to be spent on Vouchers, which they think should cover the demand for tuition (£46.50 per child per term). However if demand exceeds the available budget, new applicants will be placed on a waiting list.

What happens if my circumstances change?

Vouchers are issued yearly, to be used at the rate of £46.50 per term. You can carry on using the voucher for the year up to the end of Spring Term (Easter), but if, during that year, your income increases above the limit, you may not get further help.

How do I  apply for assistance?

The voucher scheme is managed by the Essex Music Hub.   Applications should be made through the following link: Music Tuition Voucher Application
