Mission

The World Heart Beat Music Academy envisions a world where music bridges cultural, political, economic and linguistic barriers. We aim to inspire a passion for playing musical instruments and influence a generation of often alienated young people. We provide music tuition and personal development opportunities to over 260 children and young people between the ages of 5 and 24 years, who are based in Wandsworth and the surrounding London boroughs. Many of our students come from a range of challenging backgrounds. Some are the main carer for parents or siblings, some come from households with a history of drug addiction and alcohol abuse, some are classified as not in education, employment or training (NEET) and many are recent migrants and refugees, often moving into the UK without their parents or guardians. Many have difficulties engaging in school and finding employment when they are older. From our discussions with students, community leaders and teachers, we have learned that these young people are also less likely to engage with learning music and, therefore, unable to benefit from the social and personal development resulting from such activities. We provide students with tangible and useful experiences to develop their skills and build confidence, raise their aspirations and enable them to pursue whatever career they choose, in music or otherwise.

Programs

World Heart Beat Music Academy was formed to enable disadvantaged children and young people access to music tuition and to flourish through bespoke and focused teaching methods. We deliver training in traditional classical music as well as non-traditional music from a range of genres including Asian, Celtic, Eastern European, Gypsy, Jazz and Reggae. As well as providing music training in individual lessons, group settings and performance opportunities, we enable students to obtain valuable arts management work experience, develop leadership skills through mentoring younger students and gain Art Awards (nationally recognised qualifications) within higher arts education and the creative industries.
