About Pat Legg

Pat Legg, over the years, has taught pupils of all ages and in many different places of learning. She took part in the highly innovative Tower Hamlets (London) String Project,(1982 – 1989) was Professor of cello at Trinity College of Music, and in 1991 helped set up its new Degree Course which included the study of Kodaly, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Alexander Technique, and Communication and Teaching Skills.

She also was a frequent lecturer on Music Education and String Teaching at the Royal Northern College of Music, and The Guildhall School of Music, Schools of Music, and recently has travelled abroad to various countries lecturing on Music Education and how to teach the cello.

Pat’s cello teaching books are published by Faber Music, and have been used in the Associated Board and Trinity Guildhall Exam syllabuses. Titles include such topics as The Tenor Clef and Thumb Position. She also has 200 Ensemble pieces that she has either arranged or composed for varying number of cellists and for various levels of difficulty.

Recently, because of her other commitment, to filming butterflies, she has mainly taught Late Starters. Of all her teaching experience she has found teaching adult learners to be the most helpful to her own development as a teacher.
