Our X Factor Legend Lloyd Macey
Twenty-three year old Lloyd Macey, who hails from the Rhondda, finished his course at UWTSD in the summer where he studied the Welsh medium BA Perfformio (Performance) degree programme in Cardiff.
Lloyd is very proud to have studied with the University and attributes the development of his voice and his performance skills to what he’s learnt during his time on the BA Perfformio course in Cardiff.
“I’m very proud to have studied the BA Perfformio course at UWTSD – it gave me the opportunity to grow and develop as a performer and to find my own voice, says Lloyd.
“I don’t think I would ever have gone for the X Factor if I hadn’t done this course. I’d always sung and I’d had experience of singing before but it gave me the confidence and it taught me so much about myself. It taught me how to channel my nerves….to think I can sing in front of millions of people every weekend… two years ago, I would never have been able to do it. So no way, I would never have done the X Factor if it hadn’t been for all the hard work and effort that the lectures put into this course.
“We were encouraged to explore all aspects of performance before deciding what we want to focus on - we were given so many different experiences. We also worked with a huge range of professional performers and directors from the world of theatre and television throughout the duration of the course - people who have seen our progress and witnessed our development.
“I don’t think I would have had the courage and self-belief to audition for The X Factor if it hadn’t been for all the wonderful opportunities and experiences I received during my time on the course.”
