Who are we?
Brixton Wings is a parent led community grassroots organisation and charity (Charity No 1173571) with an emphasis on providing after School and Early Intervention programmes for children and young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds.
We cater for young people who may otherwise not have access to affordable and accessible training and learning in their own community and as such we operate in the heart of the Angell Town estate in Brixton where we provide weekly after School music classes and run rowing programmes in collaboration with London Youth Rowing (LYR) and Lambeth Sports.
Throughout the week, we run hour long group lessons in keyboards/piano, guitar and band workshops, with each class developing individual pathways for participants to undertake grading exams such as ABRSM piano or Music Medal Awards.
In addition, we run weekly indoor rowing coaching and mid-term on-water rowing programmes – at the Ferndale Sports centre and the London Regatta Centre respectively.
All our lessons are taught by highly qualified and experienced teachers and coaches – with full DBS checks and child protection training.
