Christian was attracted to music at an early age that he was enrolled at a private music store by his mother Jovita and first learned to played the accordion. Eventually Christian moved onto to the piano and then the French Horn in the 6th grade. It wasn't until one month after starting French Horn that Christian decided to move to Trombone and fell in love with it since he knew it was his calling. This led Christian to study with Tenor Trombonist Dr. Gregory Woll and Bass Trombonist Mr. Roberto Soto. With their knowledge, Christian has gotten the opportunity to perform with "The World Famous" Cabana Boys, Rob Mullins, Bryan Davis, the “Artisan Brass Troupè”, "Paulie Pesh & The Vitals" and many more musicians and bands. Christian has also gotten the opportunity to study with musicians like Andrew Maz, Ricky Minor and Greg Philliganes of American Idol, Ralph Sauer of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Alex Iles of the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band, and Bob Sanders of the Pacific Symphony just to name a few people. After leaving music school, Christian went to studied Video Symphony where he learned the art and skill of Audio Engineering for both Music and Post Production. Christian studied with Michael Verdick, engineer for Madonna and Dale "D-Whiz" Everingham, engineer for Destiny's Child. Christian has already worked on two films as a Dialogue Editor, Re-recording engineer and an ADR Recording Engineer. Along with working with films, Christian has also recorded, edited, mixed and mastered for the duo, Heart First. Christian has also composed, arranged, transcribed, orchestrated and has done copyist work for groups and musicians like Composer Cameron McCloskey, Cerritos College Orchestra, Fullerton College Trombone Choir, and "The World Famous" Cabana Boys just to name a few. Christian currently plays with "Guajira: as the trombone and background vocalist. Christian also served in the United States Army, performing with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Band where he was given the opportunity to perform for thousands of people. Some of the events Christian performed for while in the U.S. Army was the 101st running of the Indy 500 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the halftime show (twice) for the Tennessee Nashville Titans on Veteran’s Day, and for the Nashville Predators.

Quick! Call The Note Police Track number: 1 Year: 2011 Album: Breakthrough: The Best of The Cabana Boys Genre: Alternative
Air: ConcertoSo this new Tenor Trombone concerto is written for Dr. Tom Gibson as a thank you for everything he does for the trombone community either through his podcasts, lessons, etc. This piece of music is entitled "Air" since it takes you on journey as if you were flying and soaring, almost like a bird. The entire piece is based off of the famous horn call by Richard Wagner, "Sigfried's Horn Call" from The Ring Cycle opera. You will hear many variations of the call throughout the whole concerto. At the moment, this concerto will not be available to the public to purchase until the premiere of the concerto. However, I am allowing you to take a listen of how it will sound with virtual instruments. If you enjoy the concerto, please follow me to stay notified with new music.

A Dream to Travel: Mexico
A Dream to Travel: MexicoI wrote this piece out of a desire to visit the birthplace of the woman who gave birth to me and to experience what she experienced growing up. There are two sections to this piece which is structured as A-B-A, where the A sections are the theme and a dream while the B section is dissecting the dream. This piece was compose by me, Christian Allan Ramirez and Mixed and Mastered by Carlos Morales, a good friend and professional audio engineer. Basically the dream is telling the listener that I would like to travel and the section is telling where.
