Chamber Music Weekends

The next Chamber Music Weekend in 2021 is scheduled for May 22/23.

This will replace the workshop from November 2020 which had to be cancelled.

There are a few openings left – please send an email if you are interested in applying.

The workshop will be held at

Yarnton Village Hall
The Paddocks, Yarnton, Kidlington OX5 1TE

07948 722633

with coaches Marion Crombie and Valerie Findlay.

There will be four sessions over each weekend – Saturday and Sunday, 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 5pm. Each session includes a 20 minute break. Groups will spend time both coached and practising independently with their groups. Cost per session is £40.

You can apply:

  • as an individual or as a pre-formed quartet or cello quartet
  • for one or more of the four available sessions

People who apply as individuals will be placed in groups (duos, trios or quartets) with other players of similar experience, and music will be sent out in advance. These sessions are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced players, and are therefore an ideal opportunity for players to get their first taste of playing chamber music (one player to a part).

Please feel free to get in touch using the contact page if you would like more information. 


Thank you so much for the Chamber Music Weekend that you put on. I really enjoyed it and have never done anything like that before so it was very special. You made an encouraging, accepting and friendly atmosphere for us to learn in, and the lovely music! M.G.
