About Alex

Organist
Stoke-on-Trent
A young, experienced and enthusiastic musician. Looking for work within Staffordshire and Leicester. All enquiries welcome.

Beginning as a pianist whilst at school, I quickly worked through all ABRSM grades and reached the diploma standard in my 3 instruments. I am currently working towards my ARCO diploma in the organ. I began my career in a small Catholic church, playing hymns on a Sunday. This quickly progressed on to bring appointed director of music at Burton on Trent's parish church at only 16. At 20 I moved to Leicester to become the successful Director of Music of St. Thomas’ parish church, leading and directing the choir, whilst training the organ scholar. The choir were invited to sing evensong at Lichfield cathedral in 2018, to which they received an invitation to return. Now I am organist of SS. Mary & Chad’s church in a Longton, Stoke on Trent. I am a regular recitalist with a wealth of experience of performing in various venues. I also teach all 3 of my instruments to diploma standard.
