Guildhall School of Music and Drama Alumni

Guildhall School of Music and Drama Alumni


Alumni of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama are at the heart of the performing arts in London, the UK and on the global stage. Their names are pre-eminent in the worlds of music (including opera, jazz, music therapy, and education and outreach work), drama (stage, screen, TV and radio), and technical theatre.

Some of our alumni are household names, while others regularly win awards and industry recognition for work behind the scenes. You can read biographies of some of our most recognisable alumni here.

We’re equally proud of the thousands of other Guildhall graduates, spread across the globe, who also form our alumni community and who are making an impact on society on a daily basis with the craft training and skills they learned here. Read about how we stay in touch with our alumni community, and how Guildhall alumni can get back in contact with us.

After you graduate

The Guildhall Development & Alumni Relations Office aims to establish a mutually beneficial and rewarding relationship between the School and its former students. It promotes networking, social contact, and active involvement in the future development of the Guildhall School.

The Development & Alumni Relations Office offers a range of benefits (free of charge), including regular magazines, programmes of events and information about careers opportunities, such as job vacancies, subsidised courses, competitions and placements.

All graduates, former staff and former students who studied at the School for at least twelve months are considered to be members of the alumni community. All new graduates are automatically registered.
