Students come together to experience and learn about music and drama under the guidance of staff drawn from London’s orchestras and freelance professionals, and senior professors of Guildhall School.

Junior Guildhall students often go on to study their chosen discipline full-time at undergraduate level, eventually making careers in the profession, though others can, and do, move into totally different fields.
