Short Courses at the Guildhall School

Make the most of your summer with a Guildhall School short course

Are you wondering what to do with your summer? Want to have fun and meet new people whilst learning from the experts? Fear not – we have plenty of short courses suitable for all skill levels and interests!

As our students take a break for the summer period, life at the School takes on a new form in the shape of our annual Acting, Music and Technical Theatre short courses. Our world-class tutors stick around after their busy winter/spring schedules to carry on teaching our summer school programmes over July and August, before term starts again in September.

The courses, which range from A Cappella Choral to Electronic Music, Body Mapping to Essential Music Theory, Period Hat Making to Prop Making, Stage Lighting and Video Projection Mapping, are designed for most ability levels – with opportunities for teachers responsible for their school’s productions, keen amateurs and early career musicians and theatre technicians. A few courses, such as Advanced Saxophone, do have entry requirements – so make sure you check the course page thoroughly for these before applying.

The summer schools range in size and length, with different residential options (staying at the School’s Sundial Court halls of residence) with or without evening meal, and non-residential for those that have a place to stay in London already. They offer a fantastic chance to learn hands-on from experts who are leaders in their field, whilst meeting others interested in the same activities and exploring the magnificent offerings of one of the greatest capital cities on earth.

Some of our short courses have already sold out so if the idea of joining us at Guildhall to dial up the fun this summer appeals to you, make sure you have a look at our short courses webpages soon!
