On 15th July, our students showcased their talents in one of the UK’s most established jazz clubs, sharing the stage with the best jazz Trio in the country. The 606 Club is known for being the venue to experience the best of British Jazz, and the evening was no exception as the young musicians performed jazz standards with style and confidence, effortlessly securing their places amongst the next generation of London-based jazz musicians.
Our biggest congratulations to all of the young musicians who worked so incredibly hard and played to such a high standard. Thanks also to Trevor Watkis, Tony Kofi, Daisy Chute and Tammy Weis for continually inspiring our students and sharing your knowledge and experience with them. Our immense gratitude to Julian Joseph, Mark Mondesir and Andrew Robb for giving our students the opportunity to perform alongside the best in the business.
This concert marked the launch of our fundraising campaign to support the Jazz programme at World Heart Beat Music Academy. See more at Global Giving UK.

We would like to thank everyone who came to the concert and has already contributed to our fundraising campaign, with your support we will be able to offer jazz tuition to even more young people and continue developing new talent.
“Learning to make Music isn’t just about learning notes. It’s about commitment, sensitivity, understanding, mutual support and a love for what you are doing. The team at World Heart Beat don’t just appreciate that, they epitomise the dedication and passion that is necessary to convey those qualities to all the young musicians who pass through their doors. A visit to WHB is a joyous event, where students and teachers alike delight in the pleasure of music making and you leave somehow feeling that you have participated in something life affirming and unique. WHB is not just important to the musical life of London, it’s essential.” – Steve Rubie, 606 Jazz Club
