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?

Bridget started her passion for the arts at an early age when she began taking ballet classes and singing in church and school choirs.  Her love of music and dance continued throughout her childhood and college.  After having her daughter she enrolled in a music and movement program and saw how much music played an important role in her daughter’s growth and loved the special memories she created with her little one and music.  

 

After having her second child, she started to run and teach her own music and movement program in Northern California for 3 years before moving to San Clemente.  Bridget has seen how music and movement play such an integral part in a child’s development and she is so excited to continue that journey with the families of San Clemente through Music Together!
