Prior to moving to Solihull, his career was as a cathedral musician, leading to almost five years as Organist and Director of Music at Bradford Cathedral, where he was appointed at the age of 25. He was also responsible for running the Senior and Chamber Choirs at Bradford Grammar School.

He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists at the age of 19, winning first prizes in all categories, including the Limpus Prize. He is also a Fellow of Trinity College London and a recipient of the Silver Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

Solo organ recitals have taken Alexander to many of the major churches and Cathedrals of the UK, including York Minster, King’s College and St John's College, Cambridge and Westminster Abbey. As a pianist, he is most active as an accompanist, performing recently in recitals at St Martin in the Fields, London, and in York.
