Inspiring and Motivating the Next Generation of Music Students
Retain and grow your music programs by learning how to create a more collaborative environment in your classroom where students become invested in creative decision-making by exploring multiple, interconnected creative intelligences through music. When students are given more ownership to explore and be excited about all aspects of music making, they will naturally become better musicians, better student leaders, and better problem solvers.

EYS offers music education programs that focus on alternative styles, improvisation, and self-expression through contemporary and diverse music; providing students with unparalleled, transformative learning opportunities.
Our most popular program is an immersive 2-day workshop plus concert.

The most integral part of every EYS is the workshops.

“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!”
“IF YOU ARE A STRING TEACHER YOU NEED TO DO THIS!!! IT HAS OPENED MY EYES TO SO MANY POSSIBILITIES! IT ALSO HAS SHOWN ME A DIFFERENT WAY TO GO ABOUT TEACHING MUSIC! THE EXCITEMENT THAT MARK BRINGS IS CONTAGIOUS! MY CLASSES ARE STILL PUMPING FROM HIS VISIT AND HOPEFULLY I CAN KEEP THIS ENERGY GOING!”
