Alexander EadonBorn and bred a Londoner, Alexander Eadon began his musical life as a chorister in the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge. After five years as a Music Scholar at Harrow School and a gap year as Organ Scholar at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, he trained at the Royal Academy of Music with David Titterington and Nicolas Kynaston for organ performance; Nigel Allcoat and Lionel Rogg for improvisation and Patrick Russill for choral direction. Alongside this, he was Director of Music at Christ Church, Southgate in North London. He completed his studies as Middlesex University.

He then spent two years simultaneously as Organist at Tewkesbury Abbey and School Organist of Dean Close School, Cheltenham (where the Abbey choristers are educated) coaching the choristers and teaching within both the preparatory and senior schools. He then became Choirmaster at Oundle School and enjoyed the life of a schoolmaster – rugby coaching, being a deputy housemaster, a head of year and everything else besides in addition to his role in the music department. Whilst at Oundle School he also recorded two albums – a solo organ disc on the school’s world-renowned Frobenius instrument and a CD with the school’s choirs. Since the autumn of 2015 he has been Assistant Director of Music at Eastbourne College where, in addition to teaching, his duties include being College Organist and a house tutor. He is also an organist at Arundel Cathedral.

He is able to pursue a freelance career alongside his College duties and is regularly found on concert hall platforms and in ecclesiastical buildings the world over. Performances have included venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall as well as many UK Cathedrals in addition to tours to France and the USA. He was, for a time, in the Classic FM charts with a CD of organ and saxophone music and also enjoys singing (tenor); he was a founder member of the internationally multi-award-winning vocal ensemble The Songmen and is a regular deputy member of several Cathedral choirs.
