About Me

What's going on my fellow musicians! My name is Clayton M. Griffin Jr. but most people just call me CJ. I am a Senior Sales Associate at the Burlington, NC Music & Arts Center. I was born and raised in Elizabeth City, NC. I started playing trumpet at the age of 10 years old. I began in middle school band and continued through high school. I am an alumnus of Pasquotank County High School. I attended Elizabeth City State University for my first year of my undergraduate career. I then transferred schools and moved up to Greensboro, NC to study Music Education at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University while studying trumpet. I intend to graduate in December of 2017 and then continue my education to obtain my master's and doctoral degrees.

Throughout my musical career, I have performed with numerous ensembles ranging from orchestras, symphonic, marching, pep and jazz bands. With performing with these various ensembles, it is a pleasure to say I have worked directly with trumpeter Sean Jones, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis and many other nationally known musicians.

I am here to help you with any of your needs in our store especially when it comes to our brass instruments! Come to our store and ask for CJ so I can help you with the best of my ability!


Musically yours,

Clayton M. Griffin Jr.
