Music at Teddy Hall

The College has lots of active musicians taking part in a wide range of musical activities. Our Director of Music, Dr James Whitbourn, conducts the Chapel Choir, together with our Organ Scholars, and encourages music-making of all kinds. View our online calendar listing all the choir rehearsals and music society events.

The College has many attractions for musicians:

  • We offer attractive Organ Scholarships, Choral Scholarships and Choral Exhibitions which allow musical duties to be combined with the workload of any Oxford degree course offered by the College.
  • There is significant ongoing investment in music, including recent purchases of a new piano and organ and a state-of-the-art PA system for student bands to use.
  • We have a Masterclass Award scheme, unique to this College, which allows talented student musicians to apply for up to £1000 a year to pay for advanced tuition.

Please note that St Edmund Hall does not offer Music as an undergraduate course option – you can find the full list of  courses offered here.
