World Heart Beat Music Academy

World Heart Beat Music Academy provides high-quality music education and fulfilling personal development opportunities for children and young people from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds, living in Wandsworth and the surrounding boroughs.   

Every week approx. 370 students aged 5-25 years participate in a rich programme from grassroots to early-career level, learning and performing music from a breadth of music genres, reflective of the heritages of our diverse community. This includes Jazz, Asian, Brazilian, Celtic, Eastern European, Gospel, Gypsy, Latin & Reggae music. We engage thousands more people annually through workshops with schools and community groups, and performances at local festivals and eminent music venues.   

We make music accessible to everyone regardless of their circumstances – 50% of our students receive full or partial bursaries to attend our academy and free instruments. In 2018, we were awarded National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) status by Arts Council England, which acknowledged the quality of our work and the contribution we make to their Creative Case for Diversity and Equality.
