Ryan Neaveill


My name is Ryan Neaveill (last name rhymes with level), and I have been teaching kids and adults of all ages for over twenty years.

After receiving my bachelors degree in music composition and theory in 1989 from Illinois Wesleyan University where I majored in piano and minored in voice, I taught for five years at the Morton Academy of Music in Morton, Illinois.

I moved to Champaign in 1994 and began composing and teaching in this wonderful community. I have adjudicated state music contests for Illinois Music Educators Association (IMEA), conducted and directed numerous church music programs and, in recent years, have done masters level work at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois, in the area of music ministry.

I am a published and award-winning composer, having been a recipient of the ASCAPlus Award for the past five straight years from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.

By teaching lessons out of my own private studio, I can offer rates considerably more affordable than you will find at some of our local music stores and academies.

  • I would recommend this business

I think Ryan knows just about everything there is to know about music all the way from classical to jazz to rock. And he can play anything. ANYTHING! At least I've never been able to stump him.

Customer Testimonials

We are taking piano (me) and singing (my daughter). It has been great taking lessons from the same teacher. Unlike other voice teachers Ryan can accompany on the piano. He is very flexible with songs and my daughter is very happy to be able to learn some current songs. I have made some progress with piano despite having no previous experience, sense of rhythm or any musical talents
