About Junior Guildhall

Guildhall Young Artists is Guildhall School’s network of centres across the country, providing inspiring performing arts training for children and young people. 

Junior Guildhall 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.

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.

Regardless of a student’s ultimate direction, the professional artistic environment of Guildhall School provides valuable life skills and the means to develop individual talents to the full. Whilst students will be expected to work hard and will be encouraged to fulfil their potential, they can expect to have plenty of fun with like-minded friends in a nurturing and safe environment.

Guildhall School of Music and Drama is ranked number one in Arts, Drama & Music by the Complete University Guide 2024, one of the top ten performing arts institutions in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2023, as well as the number one higher education institution in the Guardian University Guide music league table.
