Waltons New School of Music - Student Benefits

Student Benefits

at Waltons New School of Music

Currently-enrolled students of Waltons New School of Music are entitled to several valuable benefits, including:

Discounts & Instrument Payment Plans from Waltons Music

Because of the New School's close association with Waltons Music, currently-enrolled students are entitled to discounts on virtually everything – instruments, accessories and books – sold in the Waltons Music shop below the school. A list of discounts, by brand, is available on the Waltons Music Discounts web page. In order to receive a discount, please ask your teacher for a Student Discount Voucher, which you should bring to the shop to obtain your discount. For security, teachers need to accompany students to the shop for purchases of instruments valued over €100.

Because the cost of instruments shouldn’t deter students from music lessons, instrument payment plans are available for recommended instruments and instrument packs priced at €150 or more that allow students enrolled for two or more terms to purchase them without a large financial outlay.
