Ron Carter hails from Ferndale where he began studying cello.  He then went to Cass Tech High School in Detroit where he was urged to take up bass because a black man had no future in classical music.  He eventually earned a Master's Degree in double bass performance at the Manhattan School of Music in New York.  He has made over 2500 recordings on bass and cello.
