World Heart Beat music charity opens second Nine Elms site

Music charity World Heart Beat (WHB) opened a new academy and concert hall in London last November to provide music education to disadvantaged children and young people.

The academy in Nine Elms, Embassy Gardens, was funded by a variety of organisations including £800,000 from the government’s Levelling Up Fund.

WHB was founded by musician and music teacher Sahana Gero in 2012 and provides lessons across their two sites in Wandsworth.

Sahana said: “I wanted World Heart Beat to be like the United Nations for music.

“To be a place of real aspiration, real quality and real inspiration.”

The first site was opened on Kimber Road and 350 students receive music tuition there, more than 50% of which are on bursary support.

The new academy hopes to double these figures and allow as many children as possible to learn with them.

WHB facilitates for ages 5-25 years which includes the EMERGE programme for students over 16.
