Mr Alex Sharples

Brass Teacher

BA Applied Music (University of Strathclyde)

For the last 11 years I have been educating and performing music in Glasgow, Scotland. I believe music education is fundamental to child development; sparking creativity, the pursuit of self improvement and developing self confidence.

As a freelance performer, I have been lucky to travel around the United Kingdom and Europe. This has included festivals in the United Kingdom, Poland, Ukraine, and The Czech Republic, as well as venues across Europe and the United Kingdom. I had the opportunity to represent 'Jazz in Scotland' at the Jazzahead conference in Bremen. This gave me a great taste for working internationally.

I am delighted to be relocating to Moscow, to teach at ISM and to explore a new city, culture, and country.
