Course summary

About the programme

Guildhall School offers some of the most stimulating and creative training for composers in the UK. Studying composition at Guildhall Artist Masters level prepares you for professional life as a composer. It allows you to explore and refine your individual artistic voice within the atmosphere of a busy, modern conservatoire, while also giving you space for self-reflection.

The programme is primarily practical and project-based, but you will also be supported by weekly analytical and theoretical seminars. All students are expected to meet a series of deadlines as the year progresses - essential preparation for a professional career.

Creative and collaborative opportunities

In addition to coursework, we encourage students to take advantage of the many creative and collaborative opportunities Guildhall School has to offer. These might include working on one of the Drama Department’s many productions, collaborating with the jazz students or developing new work with postgraduate performers and e School’s New Music Society, New Music Ensemble and annual projects with the vocal ensemble EXAUDI, new music specialists PlusMinus and City Chamber Choir all provide excellent platforms for public performance.
