Our Founder, Curtis Pettaway, Jr., “CJ”, had a knack for music, rhythm and drums at a young age as he began playing by ear and taking drum lessons in elementary school. He quickly took hold of drums and percussion and played in school bands, church, junior high and high school marching bands at Cypress Creek High School.
He then attended Texas Christian University where he majored in Music Education with a minor in Music Performance. After realizing he wanted to learn more of the business and artist management aspect of music, he decided to transfer to Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee where he majored and finished with his Bachelors Degree in Music Business, Emphasis in Production. While at school in Nashville, he connected with many artists and musicians and began his work in DJing at various venues, producing and recording different artists, making beats and creating custom instrumentals, playing in studio sessions and making a name for himself in the “Music City”. He was also able to intern with the Belmont East program and work in New York, NY at Island Def Jam Records in radio promotion and Sirius Satellite radio in Imaging and commercial editing and production. This was a game changer for him in that he got to see and realize first hand what it really took to become a world-class musician or artist in today’s generation. Thus, a few years later and after much planning and preparation, spawned the creation of DYNAMIC SOUND HOUSTON!
Curtis has been teaching and playing music for over 15 years and hopes to inspire youth to get involved with music and develop their craft for years to come!
