Electrify Your Strings!

You can get a glimpse into some of the great online resources we’ll be using by visiting the About Us page on the new Virtual Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp (MWROC) website.

EYS is the music education phenomenon that bridges 
imagination and intellect through musical self-expression.

Our 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. 

Over 3,000 young orchestra, band, and choir students in a record-breaking performance in Sioux Falls, SD

“I’m a school superintendent dealing with testing opt outs. Musicians are tested every time they are on the stage. Watching the students rise to the high standards that Mark Wood sets for them and seeing the joy on their faces as they do it makes me realize the true power that music has to build self esteem and belief in a child’s ability to reach their potential. Way to go Mark! No one will ever opt out on your stage!”

Read a great cover story in Strings Magazine to find out about the goals and vision of EYS, in Mark’s own words.


EYS offers music education programs for your orchestra, string ensembles, band, and choral groups that focus on alternative styles, improvisation, and self-expression through contemporary music; providing students with unparalleled, transformative learning opportunities. Visit the Orchestra, Band, and Choir options on our Programs page for more info.

Check out our special 3-day residency program called The Ultimate Performance. Adding a third day allows us to supplement and enhance our existing enrichment aspect by providing a more in-depth educational experience for participating students and educators. STEM turns into STEAM when you add the ARTS!

Book a 2-day EYS program and D’Addario Bowed (a proud sponsor of EYS since 2011) will donate $1,000 worth of free strings and accessories to your school!

“The perfect blend of classical instruments and
the flare of rock and roll… it’s giving kids across
country a whole new appreciation for music.”
