The Guildhall School of Music and Drama (GSMD) is a music and dramatic arts school which was founded in 1880 in the City of London, UK. The first Guildhall School was housed in an old warehouse in Aldermanbury, but these premises soon proved too small. A new purpose-built building in John Carpenter Street was designed by City Architect Sir Horace Jones and opened in December 1886.

Before 1935 it was known as the Guildhall School of Music. Since 1977 it has been next to the Barbican Arts Centre in the Barbican Complex built in the 1960s – 1970s.

The GSMD offers undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, is a public examining body, and has a junior department.

Among Guildhall graduates: Orlando Bloom, Ewan McGregor, and Al Weaver.
