Allen is thrilled to join the Clayton High School Bands staff as the Percussion Instructor for the 2022-2023 Marching Season! He started his marching career with Forza East Independent Percussion in 2014, and continued on to march world class with George Mason Indoor Drumline in 2016 and 2017. Since then, he’s pursued many ventures, but has consistently been arranging and teaching for various southeast ensembles at both the scholastic and independent level.

Allen has lived in North Carolina for most of his life. He attended Corinth Holders High School before studying at East Carolina University, and has since returned to his hometown. Allen enjoys gardening and maintaining his property in the warm months, and currently owns and operates a small ecommerce business.
