Paul Gregory

Paul Gregory is well known as a guitarist, making his concert debut at the age of 16. Since his Wigmore Hall debut, he has played numerous London concerts in the Purcell Room, Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Barbican. In 1978 he won the prestigious Andres Segovia International Guitar Competition in Spain. Since this his recital and concerto work has taken him to most parts of the world. He has made over twenty programmes for BBC Radio 3 and written scores for stage, screen and concert hall. Paul is chief examiner for the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. He also studied composition and cello at the Royal College of Music. The cello playing is now lost but the urge to write music remains. Many of Paul’s compositions include the guitar; not just solo music but a large quantity of chamber pieces as well. He has also composed commercial music including BBC TV documentary sound tracks. He has a number of works in print and the Guildhall includes some of his guitar pieces in its grade examination syllabus.
