I have taken away more from Oxford Piano Weekends than any of the other piano courses I've been on. The one-to-one time with Charlotte is very generous and I loved learning from the other pianists - amazing value for money too!”

How the piano weekends work 

Oxford Piano Weekends run from Friday evening (6pm) to Sunday afternoon (3-4pm) with all lunches and dinners provided, along with teas, coffees and refreshments. The teaching sessions, with between 6-7 participants, take place in my music studio, which has a Steinway model ‘O’ piano.


Each participant has 15-20 minutes of tuition at a time in rotation, in a masterclass format, with a few short break-out discussions on key topics.

Be assured that I make every effort to ensure that the group is a safe space in which to learn and perform.


There are opportunities to practice/warm up on the piano in the studio on Friday afternoon and during the weekend. Practice slots can be reserved after booking has taken place.

The weekend will suit pianists who

  • are conservatoire or university piano students; advanced adult amateurs – equivalent to a playing standard of Grade 8 and above; semi-professional or professional pianists 

  • want to improve their piano technique, and dig deep into style and expression of their chosen repertoire 

  • are keen to develop as performers by playing in front of a small group

  • welcome exploration of psychology and emotions (the ‘inner game') that is required to learn and perform

Meals and refreshments

Having a warm, supportive environment with nutritious, homemade food is for me essential for both focused learning and overall well-being. All the food is fresh, homemade, tasty and mostly organic. Wine flows freely for the evening meals. Fresh coffee, a wide range of teas, flapjacks plus fresh fruit is available for tea breaks. Food requirements & sensitivities are also catered for when prior notice is given.
