After studying musical notation and trumpet at the Conservatoire in Rennes, Ronan Chouinard was admitted to the Conservatoire Nationale Supérieur de Musique in Paris, where he earned his Master’s degree and received five awards for musical notation and orchestration. In the course of the Erasmus programme, he studied conduction and organ improvisation at the Detmold University of Music (course of studies in church music). Following this, he enhanced the art of improvisation with Pierre Pincemaille. He is currently teaching in the French Hauts-de-Seine department as a musicology lecturer. Because he is committed to the quality of liturgical music, Ronan Chouinard also composes choral and organ music. He conducts the Cathedral Choir of St.-Sulpice and is titular organist on the Cavaillé-Coll choir organ at St.-Sulpice Church in Paris.
