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")

Dim schema As XmlSchema

For Each schema In schemaSet.Schemas()

    If schema.TargetNamespace = "http://www.contoso.com/music" Then
        schemaSet.Remove(schema)
    End If
