Mark Wood's "Electrify Your Strings!"

Electrify Your Strings! changes children’s lives by inspiring creative, innovative, and confident thinking; connecting imagination and intellect through the power of music.

International recording artist, Emmy winner, electric violinist, and music education advocate Mark Wood, along with his wife Laura Kaye, and son Elijah Wood, personally travel to cities and schools across the nation to jolt motivation in young musicians; inspiring them to continue in their musical pursuits as well as elevating their self-image and self-esteem, all while augmenting student, parent, teacher and community interest in each school’s music department. Though Mark Wood has been successful in many areas in his life, his primary passion is and always will be music education.

Your support:

● brings Mark’s Electrify Your Strings! (EYS) music education program for orchestra, band, and choir to schools and communities unable to afford the program...

 ● offers music scholarships to talented student musicians facing challenging economic circumstances...

● provides instruments to music departments and deserving student musicians...

● grants scholarships to students and educators to attend

● brings in guest artists and faculty to MWROC to enhance campers’ experiences.
