In the clever intermingling of whole-tone scales
and melodic chromaticism in Debussy's L'isle Joyeuse,
a younger Alex Goodhart discovered his purpose
was to be an artist: a composer.
To this day, his music seeks to juxtapose disparate
and complimentary musical vernacular, and to
communicate as directly as possible with an audience.
Alex grew up just outside of Philadelphia, into a family of Irish, Italian, German, and Russian descent. Acting and music occupied much of his childhood and cultivated an empathy with and interest in the advocacy for those who struggle socio-psychologically.
Later, he found inspiration from groups like the Kronos Quartet in music making that gives a voice to the various dreams and pains of the human experience.
He has studied at Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the European-American Music Alliance, the Oregon Bach Composer’s Symposium, and the Atlantic Music Festival. Working as a musician and music educator, Alex’s future is directed towards bringing music to community purpose and utilizing those experiences as opportunities to fundraise and collaborate for/with vulnerable communities.
