Biography

Hello, my name is Ronald Batdorf SR. I would like to introduce myself to you. I attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA where I earned a BME and a BM in piano performance. Later I attended Rowan University (NJ) where I earned a MA in Education and piano performance. I have also earned 33 Post-Graduate credits in education Administration.
During my more then 30 years of teaching I directed over 50 plays including three original copyrighted musicals of my own. I conducted Show Choirs, Concert Chorus, Gospel Choirs, Women’s Ensembles, and other various choirs. These various performing groups won more then 18 first-place awards, more then 12 second-place awards, and numerous other individual and group awards. We performed in Virginia, Washington, D.D., New Hampshire, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and in Canada.
Since 2000 I have been on staff at Gloucester County College (NJ) instructing Music Courses. I have authored a textbook for college titled “Appreciation of Musics”. I am also an Adjunct Instructor for Burlington County College (NJ).
Since 2004 I have composed over 500 songs for piano and voice.
Most of these songs are about feelings of love, both those which inspire us and those which hurt us. Some songs are arrangements of favorite hymns, some are about holidays, but most are about love.
They are songs about people, about deeply kept feelings, about you, and me. Songs which are for that special moment, that special feeling, that special someone, for that one moment when everything must be just right.
I am organist for two local Methodist Churches in Salem County (NJ) and have been involved in the music ministry of various churches since the age of 11.
I am a BMI composer and presently I am co-writing with two vocalist/lyricists in the Nashville area and a vocalist from Chicago.
