Carter started gaining an appreciation for the drums at a young age when his father took him to a Buddy Rich concert, because no one was available to babysit him. Afterwards, his father would buy him a tin drum set which fueled his interest in learning the instrument, and subsequently, he would start to perform professionally at the age of nine. According to him, he accidentally became ambidextrous because he practiced in front of the mirror and tried to emulate his favorite drummers by making his reflection look similar to those shown on the television. The result was that he actually performed in reverse and accidentally developed his ambidextrous skills. Later on, he would attend Shenandoah University and would graduate with a degree in Occupational Therapy.
After performing for a few years, Carter formally joined the band Secrets which focused on the jazz fusion genre. He along with LeRoi Moore, Jon D’earth, Butch Taylor, and Tim Reynolds would perform all over Virginia, but Beauford also undertook various jazz performances in several locations with a band called Blue Indigo, which also found some popularity when they were featured at the Delaware Water Gap Jazz Festival.
