Our Jazz Ensemble classes on Mondays are taught by leading Jazz musicians Trevor Watkis, Tony Kofi and Byron Wallen. These classes enable young musicians to learn their modes and the vocabulary needed to improvise. This is an ideal opportunity for young musicians, who are serious about learning and playing, to grow their skills and work towards playing in Jazz bands.

Watch our Show Reel to see some of the talented young musicians who have graduated from our Jazz Programme:
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
