My name is Makushev Maxim Viktorovich. I was born 24. 06. 1987 in Bobruisk, Mogilev region, Republic of Belarus. I grew up in a small town which situated in Gomel region and its name is Oktyabrskiy. I started to practice music at the age of 9. Now I work in The State Brass Band of The Russian Federation. I and several my group mates founded an ensemble “New Life Brass Quintet” in 2009. http://newlifebrass.com/ At this time the work in the ensemble is my general activity and I really like it. We have an eventful concert life. We give concerts in different places in Moscow such as the Catholic cathedral, the museum named after Glinka, a museum-reserve Tsaritsyno, the House of Scientists and other grounds. New Life Brass Quintet” took part in opening 25th award “Nika”. As part of the ensemble I represented The Ghnesins Russian Academy of Music in Moscow and other cities as well.
