Jeremy Lloyd is in his third year of the BMus undergraduate course at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he has studied the organ with David Titterington, Clive Driskill-Smith and Susan Landale.
At the beginning of March 2012, Jeremy was appointed Organ Scholar at Methodist Central Hall in Westminster, where he accompanies the choir for their Sunday services on the recently restored 4-manual Hill organ. His duties have included playing for a joint service with the Baptist assembly to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Baptist witness, as well as live broadcast on Radio 4 on Aldersgate Sunday.
Alongside his duties at Methodist Central Hall, Jeremy is in demand as a freelance organist and accompanist in London and the South East. He has appeared in concert at Fairfield Halls in Croydon, St. John’s Smith Square, and at St. Paul’s Cathedral after winning the organ section of the Croydon Music festival in 2009. In the past, he has also played in the Kent County Organists Association organ festival held in Maidstone, the Coulsdon and Purley Music festival, and the Godalming music festival where he won the award for the most promising organist in 2007.
Jeremy has been an accompanist for The Coda Singers in Croydon, the Kent Chamber Choir and the Kantanti Ensemble, and on Good Friday of this year, accompanied a ‘Come and Sing’ event of a sight-read performance of Mozart’s Requiem in Cobham, Kent.
In 2013, he will be appearing again at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. In the future, Jeremy hopes to take up a career in church music.
He is an Associate of the Royal College of Organists and of Trinity College in London, with a performance diploma in Piano.
