Ronan Magill was born of Irish parents in Sheffield in 1954. He was a founder member of the Yehudi Menuhin School. After studies with Fanny Waterman, he met Benjamin Britten who became his musical mentor while at school at Ampleforth and later as a student at the Royal College of Music.

He studied with David Parkhouse and John Barstow for piano and with Philip Cannon for composition, graduating with the Hopkinson Gold Medal for piano and the Cobbet prize for composition. After his acclaimed Wigmore Hall and South Bank debuts in 1974, he moved to Paris to study with Yvonne Lefebure at the Conservatoire, where he won the Premier Prix for piano and thereafter gave many concerts and frequently appeared on French radio and television.

In 1994 Ronan won the third British Contemporary Piano competition leading to appearances throughout the UK, including the 1995 Huddersfield International Contemporary Music Festival. Since then he has given recitals at the South Bank , and concerto performances with the Royal Philharmonic and Philharmonia Orchestras. He has performed many of his own compositions at leading venues. The première of Titanic was given at the Salle Gaveau, Paris in 1988.
