Terri Lyne Carrington drums up some interest in music
By Mark Shanahan and Meredith Goldstein

Celebrated jazz drummer and composer Terri Lyne Carrington paid a visit Friday to Smith Leadership Academy, a charter school in Dorchester, where she spoke to an assembly of students about her life and career. The Medford native’s personal story is nothing if not inspirational: She received a full scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music when she was just 11, and then went on to work with the likes of Carlos Santana, Stan Getz, Pharoah Sanders, Cassandra Wilson, and David Sanborn, among others.
