The World Heart Beat Music Academy received a grant from the Santander Foundation towards our project to provide music tuition to 70 disadvantaged London children.
Without free access to learning music, there is little opportunity for disadvantaged children to engage and benefit from learning a musical instrument. To address this issue, this project provides free music tuition and instruments to 70 disadvantaged and socially isolated young people, aged 5 to 19 years.
Our ethos is grounded in social change. We aim to inspire and motivate disadvantaged young people to reach beyond the limitations their circumstances have placed on them. This project will enable them to develop their leadership potential and pursue sustainable careers in the music industry and the wider creative sector. They will have a safe platform to lift their aspirations and maximise their potential as both musicians and as citizens of the world.
The Santander Foundation are committed to supporting charities to help them make a difference for disadvantaged people in the UK. They fund activities which help disadvantaged people to improve skills, build confidence or employability.
