The Julian Joseph Jazz Academy and World Heart Beat Music Academy are intertwined – their partnership helps secure the shared enrichment and creation of more well-rounded musicians. World Heart Beat students follow specialist jazz programmes at JJJA, and JJJA students expand their experience in classical music, orchestra and band performances, as well as mentoring opportunities. 

World Heart Beat’s jazz programme is spearheaded by the exemplary work of internationally renowned British jazz musicians, including pianist Trevor Watkis, saxophonist Tony Kofi and trumpeter Byron Wallen all of whom are part of the founding faculty of JJJA. Jazz vocalist Cleveland Watkiss MBE provides mentoring and masterclasses to World Heart Beat students on a regular basis.

The Julian Joseph Jazz Academy (JJJA) – under the artistic direction of internationally renowned jazz pianist, composer and World Heart Beat Patron Julian Joseph – welcomes aspiring young jazz musicians, aged 9-24 years, all year round. The Academy offers talented young instrumentalists and vocalists an amazing opportunity to work with some of the world’s top jazz musicians – developing their creative talents and performance skills, through exploring the American roots of Jazz.
