When Lloyd was in sixth grade he had a dream. He envisioned playing the double bass in such a way listening audiences would be emotionally moved. He played the double bass through high school, but was unprepared for college and as a result, dropped out. 


While attempting to cut wood on a table saw, he sliced his finger open.

A crucial turning point in his life came while living on a plot of land in Central Florida. He described the experience the only way he knew how, through relation of the Biblical reference of Moses and the burning bush.

While attempting to cut wood on a table saw, he sliced his finger open. Frantic, a voice in his head told him he would never be able to play again. Fortunately, his finger healed and for the first time he had a clear understanding and direction of what he wanted to do. Play the double bass.

Lloyd’s experience playing the double bass encompasses both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from The University of Miami under the direction of Dr. Lucas Drew, a 21-year career with The Florida Orchestra, studying under the direction of world-renowned bassist Francois Rabbath; receiving diplomas in teaching and performance from The Institute Francois Rabbath, as well as being a certified music practitioner.
