Nigel Paterson

Guitarist, mandolinist, composer, educator.


 My professional career began in the 60’s with the legendary folk group, ‘The Halliard’. I attended Brentwood College of Education (Anglia Ruskin University) & Trinity College of Music, London. Initially taught music; subsequently freelancing, playing guitar, composing & arranging for Chappell & Co.. Recording with the BBC Concert Orchestra & conducting at The Royal Albert Hall left enduring memories. I arranged and composed music for thirteen, internationally published books for the guitar. The Royal Albert Hall & The Purcell Room on London’s South Bank saw the first performances of two original choral works. In 1984 I returned to Music Education. Now retired from teaching & performing, I compose.
