Welcome to Music!
Welcome! My name is Gerardo Ramirez and it is my privilege to be the music teacher at Lathrop Intermediate. I have a Bachelor's in both Music Education and Trumpet Performance. I love performing with Jazz Bands, Salsa groups, Mariachis, Orchestras, Wind Bands, and any other kind of group that allows me to play my trumpet.
It is my firm belief that all students are entitled to a high quality music education. My students display their mastery over concepts through performances, playing tests, and daily participation. I am committed to this school and music program and am doing everything I can to ensure that all of my students are able to have access to high quality instructional materials, working instruments, and a positive and safe learning enviornment.
Outside of music and teaching, I enjoy cooking, going to the movies, and playing video games! I am an enthusiast of Super Smash Bros and enjoy spreading my love of the game with all of my friends, family, and students.
