ABOUT

bio

Ramon started trumpet at the Conservatory of Terrassa with Àlex Baiget and studied the bachelor degree in music performance at ESMUC (Catalan High School of Music) with Mireia Farrés. At the same time he got the degree in Music Teaching at the UAB (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona).

After that he moved to Oslo to study a master degree at NMH (Norwegian Academy of Music) under the guidance of Jonas Haltia and Anthony Plog.


During the time he studied in Oslo, Ramon had the chance to play with the main orchestras in Norway such as Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Oslo Filharmonien and Stavanger Symphony Orchestra.
Then, in 2014 he won the co-principal trumpet player position at Wermland Opera, in Sweden, where he worked until June 2017.

Despite his classical education, Ramon has always strived to know, learn and play many music genres and fields. From jazz to balkan music through funk, folk and pop. Actually, he has currently started to work as a producer and he still composes and plays with The Kuraybers, a world music band with balkan roots based in Oslo.

His passion for music has brought this young artist to travel around the world. One of his last international experiences was at the Girolamo Fantini International Trumpet Competition in Rome; where Ramon won the honorary mention and the special prize.

Nowadays Ramon lives a very active musical life both as a performer and educator. He teaches in several music schools, plays with different symphony orchestras in the Barcelona area and tours with Doctor Prats. Everything combined with other projects and his own YouTube channel.

Ramon is a Bach Artist and is proudly endorsed by 64audio and REMIC Microphones.
