   Mr. Kneel is Neil McIntyre, an award winning Hip Hop musician and educator, with over twenty years experience on stage and in the classroom.  

     Neil works effectively with a wide age range of kids, from toddlers to college students!  

     He is a former inner-city teacher who went on to perform for a much larger audience in 43 of the United States and 6 provinces abroad!      

     Mr. Kneel has inspired  thousands of kids with his uplifting message of character and self-respect.   

     With beatbox and vocal percussion, Mr. Kneel can make magic and emotion.  With words he can create and improvise well enough to be invited to perform at the American Jazz Museum!   

     Mr. Kneel has been fortunate enough to perform at over 600 schools and colleges and 100 public library branches! Today he lives on the Big Island of Hawai'i in Captain Cook, records with his life-long musical heroes and is extremely grateful.
