The Music Compound, a business where students of all ages can pursue their love of music, is pleased to offer a new program. Music Compound will debut its Show Choir & Musical Theatre program in September at its Cattlemen studio (1751 Cattlemen Rd., Sarasota); leading the program is noted longtime Sarasota educator, Julie Rohr McHugh.

The Show Choir, for middle and high school students, will offer opportunities for singing and dancing with some dialogue. There will be a minimum of three local performances a semester. Classes will be held on Tuesdays, from 5:00-7:00pm

The Musical Theatre program, for elementary school students, will receive instruction in acting, singing and dancing – all students will have a speaking part. There will be a minimum of three local performances per semester; the class will offer a valuable opportunity for students to perform in front of an audience. Classes will be held on Thursdays, from 5-7pm. 

“Performing arts education provides innumerable benefits to children – studies have shown these opportunities help students develop skills such as collaboration, communication, creative thinking and discipline as well as improve their cognitive skills and academic performance,” said Music Compound founder and owner Jenny Townsend. “We are so pleased to welcome Julie Rohr McHugh to help us get this program off the ground. Our participants are going to benefit tremendously from her significant expertise, experience and love of all things musical.”
