Setting the Bar. And the Sticks. Terri Lyne Carrington.

I learn something from every person I interview. Plus, there has to be something intriguing there to begin with, otherwise I may as well interview a sock puppet, right?

Sometimes, though, you interview someone you look up to A LOT. One of these people (for me) is Terri Lyne Carrington. Local from the Boston area, Berklee alum from an early age, mentor, educator, advocate, composer, performer among jazz greats-she does it all. I met with Carrington for course advice after taking one of the drum labs at Berklee. She was honest, friendly, and spot on. I’m so glad I took her advice, and I know that she impacts the lives of so many students. Of course I thought she’d a great interview for Tom Tom Magazine, especially since her most recent album, Money Jungle: Provocative in Blue, had just been released.

Did you ever get tricky advice on your studies as a performer? Did you follow it-and are you glad you did?
