Guildhall School of Music and Drama Room Hire

The music on offer is as varied as the number of groups available. We can supply individuals from solo harpists and pianists through duos and trios up to quintets performing anything from Bach to Gershwin and beyond.

Being owned and funded by the City of London, the School is in the extremely fortunate position of being in the heart of the City. The students are regular performers at City and Livery functions. In all Guildhall School students perform at over 600 External Engagement events each academic year.

To be eligible for these engagements, students, either as individuals or groups, must complete an External Engagement audition allowing the School to appraise not only performance playing ability but also professional attitude or they be recommended by their Head of Department. The School can then hope to match the correct group with each booking. Each External Engagement is different from the next and all bookings are individually tailored to the client’s requirements.


The School has a specialist Jazz and Studio Music Course. We can provide groups from solo jazz pianist to quintet.

Please note our jazz groups are not suitable for dance music.
