Member bio
Alex Johnson currently lives in Austin, Texas where he teaches carillon on a volunteer basis to the University of Texas Student Guild of Carillonneurs. His day job is teaching high school mathematics.

Alex first learned about the carillon at the University of Rochester where he began studying the instrument with Doris Aman. He studied with Tim Sleep for the GCNA Carillonneur Exam, Geert D'hollander at Bok Tower Gardens, and Koen Cosaert and Tom Van Peer at the Royal Carillon School 'Jef Denyn'. In 2019, Alex won the 8th International Queen Fabiola Competition in Mechelen, Belgium: 1st Prize Overall, 1st Prize in Improvisation, and the Prize for Best Performance of a Belgian Contemporary Work.

Alex serves on the Johan Franco Composition Committee and is also chair of the Arrangements and Transcriptions committee.

Outside carillon, Alex enjoys spending lots of time with nature and experimenting in the kitchen. He is very fond of his mbira too.
