Additional information

Ryan is an experienced singing teacher, performer and community facilitator. Currently running the Islington Community Choir, UCL Jazz vocals, The Park Life Singers and a voice leader and conductor at the Archer Academy.

‘I’m a firm believer that everyone can sing, and that we shouldn’t go into things we enjoy seeking perfection. I’ve seen many a pitchy person roll through the doors to choir and end up taking solos, and it all comes to being brave enough to do it in the first place. we want to be creating a world where we connect and bring people in, and fight for things together and shape the world together. For me that starts with singing together.’

My choirs

Islington Community Choir

The Islington Community Choir meets to sing, stretch, move, laugh, drink tea, chat, make silly noises, and make amazing noises too. We are a non-auditioned group that accepts EVERYONE…. Yes, even you “I only sing in the shower” types. We sing music from all over the world and from any style, learning a lot about other cultures and singing traditions as we go.

In the ICC, community is the most important part of what we do, and we often go for lunch together, book tickets to shows and concerts and have karaoke sessions! It’s the best place to be to find people with positivity, great humour and a love of music.

Come join us – you won’t regret it!
