Joe works as an accompanist, conductor and animateur with choirs of all ages and abilities, in the UK and beyond.


Joe's work with choirs is founded on the principle that choral singing should be inclusive and accessible to everyone. Rehearsals should be fast-paced and effective but also fun and light-hearted, and anyone should, with healthy voice use, be able to sing music in any style.

Joe is the artistic director of The Collective, a new vocal ensemble composed of actors, singers, musical directors and others working in the arts.

For the past four years Joe has been the musical director of the Barnes Community Choir, a non-auditioned choir in South-West London, and he is the regular accompanist / associate conductor of All Sing! Harrow Road Community Choir. Other groups Joe has worked with are listed here >>

He also runs one-off choral singing workshops for ensembles on request.

The Collective was formed in January 2016. The group is composed of actors, singers, musical directors and others working in the arts who enjoy singing choral music of various styles in a relaxed and unpretentious environment. The added twist is that the choir is led by not one musical director but many, who share the accompanying and conducting of the group.

The Collective gave their first public performances in August 2016 when they performed at All Hallows by the Tower and St Mary's Church Putney, in two collaborative concerts with PopUp Choir of Minneapolis, USA.

Their repertoire ranged from Renaissance polyphony to jazz standards and featured the UK premiere of US composer Jocelyn Hagen's 'To See the Sky'.

Barnes Community Choir was founded in 2011 as a non-auditioned choir for singers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities who share a love of song and an enthusiasm for meeting people and making music. 

The choir sings contemporary choral works, pop, jazz, gospel and musical theatre, all of which are learnt without sheet music in fun and informal Thursday evening rehearsal sessions. They perform in and around Barnes - in churches, pubs, community spaces and even street corners - as well as in other venues throughout London, e.g. the South Bank Centre, Tate Modern and Young Vic.
