Debbie Carroll is a children’s teacher, performer and workshop leader who loves to share songs and rhymes that capture the imagination and encourage participation. Her collections include original and traditional action songs and lullabies where listeners encounter a fish, gardens, pussycats, trains, trees, the moon and the stars! Debbie is a winner of both Parents’ Choice and Children’s Music Web awards and a Canadian Folk Music Awards nominee for Children’s Album of the Year. She is right up there with beloved Canadian artists like Raffi and Sharon, Lois and Bram.

Debbie studied Music (B.Mus.A) and Education (B.Ed.)at the University of Western Ontario, London and later earned an Advanced Certificate in Early Childhood Music Education from Ryerson University and The Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. She has taught early childhood music with the Young Children’s Creative Music and Movement Classes, The Kingsway Conservatory of Music, and The East Street Station, and led participatory workshops for parent, teachers and librarians in both Canada and the U.S.

Debbie lives in Goderich, Ontario, with her husband and two cats. Their son is a musician and their daughter is a costume seamstress. Debbie plays a variety of instruments including piano, flute and Celtic harp and she loves to draw, knit and walk on the beach.

A rare treasure… specifically for the littlest people but so beautifully executed that grownups will love it, too.”
