At the age of three, Mr. Carter was staying with his grandfather in Irvington, New York, who would play the piano, sing and served as an organist and choir director at the local Presbyterian Church. Due to his grandfather's passion for music, he became inspired as well. After earning a bachelor's degree in music from Ohio Wesleyan University and a master's degree in music education from Eastman School of Music, Mr. Carter obtained a permanent teacher's certification through the New York State Department of Labor.
Over the years, Mr. Carter served on the humanities committee for the Community College of Vermont, for which he designed and implemented the music theory course and implemented curriculum for the students. He was additionally active as a cooperating artist with Saint Michael's College and a specialized community support worker for Howard Center. Mr. Carter also gained valuable expertise in the field as a teacher of music at the MacDuffie School and for Brownell Mountain School in Williston, Vermont.
Drawing upon his considerable expertise, Mr. Carter operated as an artist-in-residence at several schools including Harwood Union High School, where he facilitated the education of students in brass instruments. He also works as a private music instructor with Octavemode, through which he fosters student growth through strength-based activities. In order to remain aware of changes in the field, Mr. Carter is affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association and attended the International Brass Congress. He is a former member of the International Trombone Association, the National Association for Music Education, and the Performing Arts department of MacDuffie School, for which he was elected as co-chairman.
Outside of his primary professional responsibilities, Mr. Carter has dedicated his time and resources to First Night Burlington, the Jazz Festival in Burlington, Vermont, and The Salvation Army. Throughout his career, he has composed several works, including "HURT," an opera which is still to be completed, and more than 110 songs. For his exemplary professional efforts, Mr. Carter has received the Danforth I Dare You Award and the John Phillips Award.
Although his career has been filled with highlights, Mr. Carter is incredibly proud of witnessing the success of his students as a private music instructor.
