Born in South Wales, Lloyd Coleman studied composition at the Royal Academy of Music until July 2014. He is now developing a freelance career in writing and performing as a clarinetist.
His music has been performed by many leading ensembles, including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Aurora Orchestra, Sacconi Quartet, Endymion, New London Chamber Ensemble, The Hermes Experiment and the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales.
As a clarinetist, Lloyd began his orchestral training in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Nowadays, he complements his writing commitments with frequent performances of new music written by other composers. Since 2012, he has been a member of the groundbreaking British Paraorchestra, who will perform a new piece by Lloyd in July 2015.
Alongside his music making, Lloyd holds an interest in broadcasting about the subject. He is the creator of Taking Notes, an online music show in which he interviews and promotes fellow young musicians. Encouraged by praise for his natural style of delivery, Lloyd continues to expand its format and audience.
