Neil received his Bachelor of Arts with a double major in English and Spanish in 1980 from the Simon Fraser University. In addition, Neil has taken courses in Kodaly and Orff music methodologies as well as courses in choral conducting. Presently, Neil is studying voice with Lyn Vernon.

Neil began teaching in 1981, semi-retired in 2014, and fully retired in 2018. For the past twenty years, Neil has taught music from Kindergarten to Grade Seven in Prince George at Vanway Elementary, and most recently at Immaculate Conception School. Neil's school choirs, most notably the Vanway Trebles, have consistently represented Prince George at Performing Arts B.C., the provincial festival, and regularly have earned "Winner" and "Runner-Up" placements.
