Alex is much in demand as a conductor, and especially for youth orchestras and ensembles. Before the Covid pandemic, he was successful and popular as conductor of the Intermediate Orchestra for the Benedetti Sessions in its opening years with workshops and performances in Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Dundee. When the sessions went online he provided regular conducting tuition and inspiration for both for young musicians and teachers.

Alex was musical director and conductor for the National Children’s Orchestras of Great Britain Easterlies from 2012-2016, and took up the role again from 2019.  He also acts as coach and conductor for the NCO age band orchestras. He has been a course director and conductor for the National Youth String Orchestra of Great Britain, and now also conducts the string orchestra for Warwickshire Music Hub.

Alex’s work with the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation Symphony Orchestra has seen them invited to perform at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall as part of Music for Youth.
