Our aim is to offer training, and thereby to create opportunities, for talented young musicians who plan to make chamber music an important part of their career.

Each year we provide four residential courses which are completely free for the participants. They last for approximately ten days and are held in a beautiful converted barn in the heart of the Surrey countryside.

Aidan Woodcock, who founded the Trust in 2006, was a member of the London Symphony Orchestra.  Music, in particular chamber music, was the great passion of his life and many of today‚Äôs professional musicians owe him an incalculable debt for the opportunities and encouragement he gave them. Aidan died in 2016 but his legacy lives on in the work of this charity.
