Learn your voice part with John Rutter's ChoirGuides!

ChoirGuides is an online tool to help singers learn their vocal parts, featuring a music library personally curated by composer John Rutter

Who's it for?


  • Use it on your own - you don’t need to be a member of a choir.

  • Have fun practising at home or just singing in the company of expert singers.

  • Sight-reading not your strong suit? It’s like standing next to the best singer in your section.

  • Can’t make it out to rehearsals? You can still sing with others!

Choir Directors

  • Speed up your choir’s learning. Singers can build confidence and skill between rehearsals.

  • Keep up singing in your choir during difficult times.

  • Facilitate virtual recordings. Singers can record their contributions, synchronised to the same backing-track. Each can choose what to hear while recording: full choir, their own voice part or just accompaniment.

  • Our professionally-recorded accompaniments can be purchased as standalone items, for download.

How does it work?

  • Registration is free.

  • No subscriptions, just one-off payments for each composition purchased.

  • Guides in our catalogue can be purchased either by individuals for their own use, or by choir directors on behalf of their members.

  • Purchases are for life, no hidden costs.

Easier virtual recordings

Making a virtual performance? Our Recording Assistant mode helps choir members synchronise easily, each choosing their preferred form of playback.

Available music

We have 21 titles which have been hand picked by John Rutter, as well as a number of his own compositions our catalogue also includes pieces by other composers, such as Mozart, Fauré and arrangements of traditional works. We look forward to adding further repertoire soon!
