Music Compound Welcomes musicians of all ages and provides a music hub for local artists and rising stars.

            SARASOTA, FL (September 11, 2018)  – Music Compound originally opened two and a half years ago in Sarasota on Cattlemen Road.  Music Compound will open a second location in downtown Sarasota late-September.  The new location is adjacent to the new indie market, the Bazaar at Apricot and Lime. The new location will provide a new and innovative music studio for downtown residents and students.  The studio is 1,000 square feet of space that offers the same cool vibe as the original location including the inspiring music lounge.  “I am very excited to expand our mission and services to downtown Sarasota. This opportunity came about on a Saturday morning two months ago unexpectedly. After meeting Judy and learning about her vision, it was a no brainer” Jenny Townsend stated about her expansion plans.

The downtown location will specialize in adult group classes, guitar, ukulele, songwriting, vocals, and percussion.  Classes will be offered during the day for retirees or working individuals looking for a great way to escape the office mid-day.  Spouses and/or parents of students can enjoy refreshments, while at the same time browsing the market for fabulous finds from 20+ local artists. Enrollment is open for adult group classes and they are offered weekly on Thursdays. As the Bazaar on Apricot and Lime grows, so will Music Compound.  There are plans for a unique courtyard with food and live music provided by students of the Music Compound and local artists. The studio will be open the same hours as The Bazaar October thru December. Hours of operation are Thursday thru Saturday 10AM – 3PM.

In conjunction with the Bazaar’s Grand Opening, Music Compound’s downtown location will host an open house September 26th from 5:00 – 7:00PM. Guests can enjoy live music, food, drink, and unique treasures. Music Compound will host a ribbon cutting and Grand Opening in January 2019.
