Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Lloyd and I'm beyond excited to join the team at South Florence HS as the newly appointed Band Director for the 2022-2023 school year. I have come to South Florence most recently from Palos Verdes Peninsula High School in Palos Verdes, California. While at Peninsula, I led the Concert Band and Jazz Ensembles to unanimous superior rankings in the spring of 2022. My AP Music Theory students averaged scores above both state and global averages. Prior to my time at Peninsula, I spent 13 years at St. Anthony High School, where I led the marching band program to 7 consecutive California State Band Championships finals appearances. I have been nominated twice for the Grammy Music Educator award. I hold a masters in education (from Loyola Marymount University) and a bachelors in music education (from California State University Dominguez Hills). Outside of education, I am a professional percussionist, and have had the privilege of touring Europe with 6-time Grammy Award Winner Daniel Ho. I'm truly honored to be chosen as the director to lead the wonderfully talented South Florence band students into the next chapter of success. Me and my wife Janine are very excited about starting the next chapter of our life in South Carolina. GO BRUINS!!!
