XmlSchemaSet schemaSet = new XmlSchemaSet();
schemaSet.Add("http://www.contoso.com/retail", "http://www.contoso.com/retail.xsd");
schemaSet.Add("http://www.contoso.com/books", "http://www.contoso.com/books.xsd");
schemaSet.Add("http://www.contoso.com/music", "http://www.contoso.com/music.xsd");

foreach (XmlSchema schema in schemaSet.Schemas())
{
    if (schema.TargetNamespace == "http://www.contoso.com/music")
    {
        schemaSet.Remove(schema);
    }
}
