Alex is definitely an introvert. He prefers solitude to social gatherings. He finds reading to be the most enjoyable of his pastimes other than composing and listening to music, but that's more his job than a hobby. He's a very smart man and enjoys learning many new things even if it isn't something he's particularly good at. For example, he doesn't mind sitting in on lectures on theoretical physics even though he doesn't understand half of what it means. He just likes to immerse himself in knowledge whether it be science, math, literature, or any other subject. Most of his entertainment comes from reading books and learning knew thing which is why he's not the most popular person in the world.
Although Alex is reclusive, he is also quite loving and kind. He accepts all people regardless of their race, gender, political persuasion, or religion. He might not be the most talkative and social person, but that's not because he has a hatred for people. In fact, he has a soft spot for small children and hopes to become a father someday. He understands that in order to have a child, he has to find a suitable partner. But he really is not that great in romantic relationships. Well, people misunderstand him in romantic relationships. With the right person, he's extremely loyal and loving, but it takes him a while to get to that level. At the beginning of relationships, people often claim that he is distant and apathetic, but that's not the case. He's just afraid of emotionally investing in a relationship that will inevitably end.
Passion runs through his veins. He throws himself into his work completely which is why he's one of the best in his class. He's unafraid to scrap a work of music a thousand times if he's not satisfied with it. Alex will never settle for mediocrity. Someday he wants to be regarded as one of the greats like Beethoven or Mahler, and he's willing to work his butt off to get there. With his work, he can also be quite competitive. Most of his friends are not music majors because he's so intense. He wants to, not only be the best composer in his class, but the best composer in the world. His goals are high, and he's willing to do anything to achieve them.
As a friend, Alex is one of the best you could have. He's loyal, trustworthy, and supportive. It does take a lot to earn his trust, but once it is earned, he's the best friend one could possibly have. He'll go to the ends of the Earth for his closest companions and family members.
Alexander Edgar Bryant was born on the second of December in New York City. From the time he was a little boy, Alex always had an interest in music. His father, Phillip, played first chair, first trumpet for the New York Philharmonic and his mother, Andrea, was an opera singer. His house was full of music everyday. When he was four years old, his father began teaching him how to play the piano. Alex picked the skill up quickly, and was soon playing difficult music at a young age. It appeared the young boy had inherited the family's musical abilities. He also had an older sister, twenty years his senior.
When he was ten he started taking trombone lessons. His father wanted him to play the trumpet, but Alex didn't want to be exactly like his father. He liked how big and loud the trombone was, and as he started to get better at it, the more he loved it. Like the piano, he caught on fast. When he entered high school, he joined the school orchestra and jazz band. With his ability, he earned the first chair, first trombone position. He excelled and in both his junior and senior year attended All State orchestra as first chair, first trombone. He was destined to go far with his music career.
Aside from music, Alex was also a gifted student. He studied a lot. But when it came to sports, he was a failure. His parents really didn't mind. Being advocates of music and the fine arts, it was OK for him to not be as athletic as some parents wanted. He primarily kept to himself in high school, and when it came time to go to college, he applied to five different music schools. He got into the majority of them, including the esteemed Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music. Following in his father's footsteps, Alex decided to fo to Juilliard.
In college, he majored in music with a specialization in theory and composition. He was a top student amongst many talented musicians. His parents were both very proud of him. He finished his undergraduate at Juilliard. His father pulled some strings and got him a job as the third trombone, second chair in the New York Philharmonic. He liked his job, but he didn't agree with the conductor's style or interpretations of most of the songs. After a few years, he decided to go back to graduate school.
Instead of applying for a school in New York City, he decided to go out of state. He got into Wentworth University's music department without a question, and began working to get his degree two years ago. He doesn't love being back in college life, but he's hoping to find just the right thing to inspire him to create a work of genius.
