Alex started playing the cornet at 11 years old. Following lessons at School he joined a youth brass band near him, based in Pershore, Perscoran Brass. This managed to keep him on the straightish and narrowish until he went off the rails and became a Euphonium player at about 16. There was general relief in the family though, as it could have been worse. He could have become a Trombonist. He left for University at 19, and had a gap of about 10 years until joining railway band in about 2011.
