Wood, Mark Electrify Your Strings! Music
Electrify Your Strings! (2-day workshop plus concert) is the brainchild of Emmy-award winning, Juilliard-trained electric violinist Mark Wood (Trans-Siberian Orchestra). By having students participate in real-life rehearsal and performance situations, we will help you to create your very own ROCK ORCHESTRA! Mark will inspire students with cutting-edge methods he’s developed over the years and will have them demonstrating and applying these techniques, building a bridge to help them connect the classical and contemporary world of string playing. The program culminates in an evening concert featuring Mark performing with your students, where they can show off the skills they’ve acquired during the event.
