The School of Music Business takes place at The London School of English in the evenings and on weekends. The building is located in an exclusive and upmarket residential neighbourhood, in one of the best streets in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is only 5 minutes’ walk from Holland Park tube station and Shepherds Bush tube station. It is a short walk from the hub of the music industry in the UK, with most of the major label offices including Warner & Universal just 10 minutes away on foot.
Built in 1885, the school is a fine traditional four-storey Victorian building with beautiful and elegant décor. It has a grand entrance with a fine reception hall and a restaurant with access to a nice terrace. The terrace overlooks private tennis courts.
When this building was occupied by a private family, it was also used for chamber concerts, attracting well-known musicians like Ravel, who performed here in 1911. During 1950s and 60s, this building was occupied by the Royal Academy of Dancing, with Dame Margot Fonteyn as patron.
