Electrify Your Symphony!
Mark founded the groundbreaking music education program Electrify Your Strings!™ (aka Electrify Your Symphony) close to 20 years ago and has dedicated his career to creating an educational experience that boosts student self-esteem and motivation, increases school-wide, family and community engagement, and helps raise much-needed funding for participating schools.
Mark’s mission is to empower traditional orchestras, bands, and choirs with 21st century skills, and provide the means for young people to think and act creatively through music making and music sharing.
Book a 2-day EYS program during our 2018-2019 Discovery Tour and we’ll give you a FREE Stingray SVX electric violin that you can use for raffle purposes. In addition, D’Addario Bowed (a proud sponsor of EYS since 2011) will donate $1,000 worth of free strings and accessories to your school, plus CodaBow will donate a free violin bow!
A musician should have no boundaries or limitations, whatever their voice.
This has been Mark Wood’s lifelong philosophy and is evident in his playing style and Wood Violins, the revolutionary line of electric violins he invented that inspire players the world over to unparalleled creative heights.
One of the secrets to WV’s success is the amazing team of artisans who lovingly create our instruments. Here, Mark introduces the Wood Violins team and shares a glimpse into their building process…
