Johnson, Founder and President of CWJ Music House Publications, is a music educator, trombonist, and composer, and has taught music, primarily in the band field, for nineteen years. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree from West Chester University of Pennsylvania (2002) and a Master of Music degree from Boston University (2012). His career experience over the past seventeen years has led him to New Brunswick, NJ, where he is the Director of Bands at Paul Robeson Community School for the Arts. During his career in New Brunswick, he has worked closely with the VH1 Save the Music Foundation to revive the instrumental music program that had previously been defunct for nearly 20 years.

As the founder and chief composer of CWJ Music House, Christopher focuses his company's writing on programmatic, concert and contest music for ensembles of all levels. It is his desire to compose and publish quality music that is challenging yet achievable. A number of works have been selected for the Bandworld Magazine Top 100 List for New Compositions. He has accepted commissions and written pieces for numerous ensembles throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and is the Composer-in-Residence for the Whitehouse Wind Symphony in Whitehouse NJ, of which he has served on their board of directors. Christopher was a founding member of Cimbasso and the Serpents trombone ensemble, a breakout group of Whitehouse Wind Symphony. He has also performed with the Buddy Spencer Big Band and the Blueberry Festival Massed Band in Montrose, PA.

Christopher is one of fourteen writers currently with CWJ Music House. Other members of his writing team staff include Ryan J. Williams, Nicholas R. Greeson, Daniel C.D. Brown, Michael C. Howell, Christopher Krzeminski, Casimir V. Bork, Jr, C. Douglas Ballard (Editor of Marching Arts Division), Anthony N. June, Joseph J. Verderese, Jr. (Editor of "Concepts for Success" Series), Alexandre F. Soares (Editor of Strings Publications), K.S. Burkhart and most recently, Austin Gross and John Wernega.
