After initial training at London's Royal Academy of Music, Robert Neufeld studied at Sussex University, where he obtained a Master's Degree in music, and then at the National Film and Television School, from where he graduated as a composer in 1992. He has gone on to establish a highly successful career writing music for television and advertising productions.

Robert also scored The Search for PT109 for National Geographic in the USA and Failure is Not an Option. This 2-hour special for The History Channel, was made with the co-operation of NASA Mission Director Gene Kranz and his contemporaries, telling the both harrowing and uplifting tale of America's challenges and triumphs in the space race of the 1960's. Robert's score for this production, pushed the envelope of new sampling technology to create the feel of live performance, as the brief for the music was large-scale orchestral but without an orchestral budget.
