Carol Boot-Storie began dancing at age three and soon began playing piano and then percussion in bands and orchestras. This was the early journey of her lifelong love of music and dance. She began taking Music Together with her young son and soon realized how much Music Together contributed to his development and their joy and development as a family.

She thoroughly enjoys sharing in children& their musical growth through playful learning and family participation.

Carol truly embraces the joy of making music together with all of her familes. What could be more fun that singing and dancing with children?

Lindsey has always loved music. She played the violin and fiddle during middle school and also took dance classes. When her daughter, Delaney, was a baby she took her to Music Together Classes. Being an educator for over 25 years she has always brought music and movement into her lessons and she believes strongly that we all can learn better through music. For the past several years Lindsey has been teaching kindergarten in the public school system and has brought Music Together to her classroom and all the kindergarten classes at her school. She is excited to be part of the Music Together Family once again!
