Rex began studying music in the 2nd grade with piano lessons, adding guitar in the 7th grade, and then joining the band in high school playing mallet percussion such as xylophone, marimba, bells, and vibraphone. After graduating high school in 2001, he entered studies at University of North Texas in Denton, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Music in 2005.
