Neville Copland


Neville Copland began learning keyboards in Southland at the age of six, later studying Music with Honours at Otago University. After a gig in 1986 as music director for Play School, he plunged into a prolific composing career for TV, including many NHNZ docos which have screened internationally. In 2011 Copland was nominated for an Aotearoa Film Award for his first feature score: The  Insatiable Moon.

I can’t speak highly enough of the dedication and professionalism Neville has brought to the job. Of course with four film and television awards for best music, he has some experience! But he’s brought his heart and soul to this project, and we’re the grateful recipients of it. Producer Mike Riddell, on The Insatiable Moon website
