Music and drama entertain and inspire and have the power to transform lives. Each year, nearly half of the School’s students receive some kind of scholarship support, made possible thanks to the generous donations of individuals, organisations and companies. Many more young people need that same support to take up a hard won place or to share their talent with local communities and audiences here and around the world. 

Please join us in giving what you can to help us provide scholarships for the current and future students of Guildhall School of Music & Drama alongside support for other essential projects at the School - all aimed increasing access and fulfilling artistic potential.

'The support I receive means that I can stay in London and finish my studies without the looming anxiety of financial inadequacy. It means I can continue to learn, develop, and get inspired by the incredible surrounding of Barbican and the arts across London. I get to be a part of important work and feed my curiosity. I am thrilled and very honoured to be able to continue my studies with the help from my award.'

– Aina Miyagi Magnell, MA Mezzo-Soprano

Thank you for your interest and support - without it, too many talented young people will miss the opportunity to pursue their dreams and make a difference to the communities their music and drama reaches. If you'd like to come along and meet one of our Trustees or experience first-hand a music of drama performance, please get in touch with us.
