Terri Lyne Carrington: Drums Isn’t Everything

Terri Lyne Carrington: “I want to be a total musician, which includes writing and arranging music. I don’t want to be known as just a drummer.

“To me, the most important thing is to do well in school, and to be with all my family members as much as possible. [T]hey’re very warm and supportive people. These things come before drums. I mean, drums isn’t everything.”
