Oral History Information
Ron Manus is as passionate and focused as anyone in our industry. His interest in developing new music makers has much more to do with sharing what he personally knows as the benefits than making an extra dollar. In thinking of the passion of his parents, Morty and Iris, this way of thinking stands to reason. Ron’s grandfather started Alfred Music Publishing and his parents ran and grew it for over fifty years before Ron took over. Ron has played a key role in the company’s growth and expansion as Alfred Music reaches to make more music makers and grow the industry through digital and more traditional expansion. Once more Ron has helped unite the industry in the tough economic times of the Great Recession by supporting organizations that continued to educate and inspire, such as RPMDA and in serving on the NAMM Board. We are looking forward to conducting a part two with Ron to continue to document this most incredible story!
