COMPOSITIONS


     As a composer/arranger, Ron is known primarily for his handbell, choral, and instrumental music written for the church, school, and community choir markets. Jeffers Publications has called Ron a "talented arranger," and MorningStar Music Publishers writes, "Ron Mallory has a talent for bringing new ideas to familiar tunes." Several of Ron's handbell works have been selected as winners of national composition contests. In addition to his work in these areas, Ron enjoys writing more experimental original music for forces such as concert band, woodwind ensemble, solo piano, and electronic instruments, often drawing inspiration from the minimalist and neo-Romantic schools of thought. Ron has a master's degree in choral conducting from the University of Washington, where he studied under Dr. Abraham Kaplan and Dr. Geoffrey Boers, and a bachelor's degree in music composition from California State University, Long Beach, where he studied under Dr. Martin Herman.
