Our incredible OFFICE STAFF! These are the super awesome people who will interact with you on a regular basis as you plan and prepare for your EYS visit. They are here to help YOU!

EYS Administrative Director

Deb will help you schedule and plan your event, answer any questions you may have about what to expect before, during, and after; and work hand in hand with you to ensure the success of your visit.

Deb, who joined us in May 2017, was a valued and integral part of our team even before she started working here. For 29 years, Deb taught the hormonally challenged English and Math students in her school district (aka Middle School) and, as a parent whose son participated in two major EYS residencies in her community, she volunteered her time to manage every logistical aspect; falling in love with our whole concept in the process. 

In addition to providing positive and helpful customer service for all of our companies (EYS, Wood Violins, MWROC, and Mark Wood Music Productions), she supervises the artisans at the Wood Violins shop, handles all our trade show appearances, and generally goes above and beyond at every turn.

Deb lives in Texas with her beloved husband Tim and their 18-year old son Will, who will attend Berklee College of Music in the fall. She loves to travel, enjoys discovering new restaurants, but hates to exercise! Haha! Don’t we all! 😉

As a retired educator with a bachelors degree in education and a masters in curriculum and instruction, Deb brings a level of creativity and understanding to every aspect of Mark Wood Music Headquarters!

Director of Sales and Customer Support (for Wood Violins)
Administrative Assistant (for EYS)

Serena is the person who coordinates the shipping of EYS merch (t-shirts, CDs, etc.) and demo instruments to and from your school. She is the ultra helpful presence who will be in touch with you long before your program to make sure all those details (and more) will be taken care of.

She will also be handling everything in the Wood Violins world; from customer support to sales to all sorts of fun projects.

In fact, Serena is on top of so many things around here that it would take a book to list them all. From larger tasks such as being in charge of ordering, cataloguing, and shipping all inventory for EYS, Wood Violins, MWROC, and Mark Wood Music Productions, she also makes sure our office mascots (see below) are taken care of when the rest of the team is on the road.

She loves to dance and exercise and she and her husband have two beautiful young daughters.


In order to run EYS efficiently and effectively, we need as many helpers as we can get. Meet (from left to right) Ziggy, Melody, and Mallomar – aka our “stress relievers” – who take turns trying on new merch items, testing instruments, sitting in our chairs, editing our documents, sharing our meals, and getting fur in as many places as they possibly can.
