Electrify Your Strings!

Our Team


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!

Administrative Director

Sierra KnottsSierra 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.

Sierra, who joined EYS in mid-2016, has already become a valued and integral part of our team.  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.

A string player herself, Sierra brings a level of creativity and understanding to every aspect of Mark Wood Music Headquarters!

Administrative Assistant

[Photo coming soon – we promise!] 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.

Sierra 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 are taken care of when the rest of the team is on the road.


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.
