A few years later he graduated to the drums, playing during various parts of the service. The son of a musician and local high school music teacher, the  26-year-old grew up surrounded by the artform and learned how to read music before he could write. In 2016 he served as the house drummer for NBC variety show Maya and Marty.  To celebrate Jazz at Lincoln Center’s  30th anniversary, Carter will be headlining a series of shows aimed to entertaining and expanding the community for jazz music in Shanghai.
