OUMS is here to serve the musicians of Oxford, and in this section of the site you will find resources to help you make the most of OUMS.


The OUMS databases of Players, Singers and Teachers allow you to find the people you are after, or offer your services to OUMS members.

The Players Database can be used by University, College and other ensembles to source instrumentalists on specific instruments and at specific standards. OUMS intends to build the database into a comprehensive and up-to-date record of Oxford’s musicians. You can view or sign up to the Players Database here.

There is also a specific Singers Database for choral and solo vocalists. You can view or sign up to the Singers Database here.

The Teachers Database allows you to offer your services as a tutor at any level, or to search for an Oxford-based teacher. You can view or sign up to the Teachers Database here.
