"This was the best and most relevant professional development I have had in my 16 years of teaching. Usually, professional development is geared toward core class teachers, and I struggle to find ways to apply it to my classroom. I walk into this next school year with an arsenal of techniques and tools to be successful, no matter what the landscape may look like."
Jeremy Samuel, Orchestra Director
“Last night was an orchestra district meeting which combines my county with the one just north of us. I'm using lots of what I learned during your PD sessions, my principal approved Soundtrap and Noteflight for all my students. At last night’s meeting, I felt like the only 21st century teacher. I had so much to offer and lots of ideas and resources to share to help them!”
Amanda Baumann, Orchestra Director

Since the inception of EYS in 2001, Mark Wood has encountered countless truly special and dedicated educators. Orchestra Directors Heather Gonzalez and Cory Zilisch are leading examples of what can be done with music programs; overcoming all obstacles, trials, and tribulations to deliver the absolute best musical experiences to their students and their community. We could not think of better people to join our team and help other educators with the challenges of the current school year.
Cory and Heather led an extremely empowering 10-day Professional Development course during the Home Edition of Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp and it was such a success that we are providing those courses (and more) for ALL teachers.
