LaGuardia High School of the Music & Performing Arts, under the tutelage of Justin Dicioccio.  In 1989, Burton was chosen by Dicioccio to be the alto man in an all star quintet that was awarded best jazz combo by Downbeat Magazine.  In addition, Burton received an award for outstanding soloist.

Trying to fit Regina Carter into a neatly defined musical category is pointless. She enjoys performing many styles of music—jazz, R&B, Latin, classical, blues, country, pop, and African.

In addition to receiving a “genius grant” from the MacArthur Foundation, San Francisco Performances also took note of her exceptional work and appointed her Artist-in-Residence for five years. Carter also served as one of the Resident Artistic Directors for the discerning SFJAZZ during its inaugural season in its spectacular new home. Most recently, the acclaimed violinist was selected as the 2017 Showcase Artist for the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival and in 2018 was appointed as the Director of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s All-Female Jazz Residency, a unique summer immersion program for aspiring women jazz professionals.
