When & Where
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.
