TO ELECTRIFY YOUR SYMPHONY
The past 19 months have been difficult for us all, but especially for young people who may not have developed the coping skills to understand how to deal with the complex emotions arising from a global pandemic. Our mission has ALWAYS been one of empowerment… and we are more committed than ever to continue sharing our critically important messages about the power of musical self-expression and creative emotional outlets. EYS helps kids find ways to give themselves permission to express everything they’re feeling through their MUSIC… and when we say, “music saved our lives,” we speak from a place of deep truth…
Working directly with Mark Wood, Laura Kaye, and their incredible team of world-class Artist Mentors, your students will be introduced to an entirely new creative universe laying right there in front of them. They’ll learn about improvisation and performance techniques from masters of both. In fact, all the artists on the EYS team have years of experience in the music industry and a vast wealth of knowledge they want to share.
Art is healing.
Music is healing.
When we give kids the tools to go forth into the world and create beauty from their internal struggles, it not only nourishes THEIR souls but ours as well…

the story of EYS tour logos
EYS began over 20 years ago and, back in 2010, we thought it would be a great idea to start naming each "tour" and create eye-catching logos specific to each school year. We put the logos on posters to advertise EYS concerts and custom tees that can be customizable to include school info on the back so participating schools and students could have a great memento from the visits.
Since the pandemic interrupted our in-person EYS programs during the 2019-2020 school year, we used The Ultimate Tour logo for our online Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp that summer. By the way, MWROC is where we tested out all of the great ideas we ended up utilizing when we created the EYS Online program. You can watch our story (and see lots of other videos) on the Press Room page.
The Spotlight Tour logo was originally created for the 2020-2021 school year but, since we've been "spotlighting" so many young musicians and singers with EYS Online (8,000+ and growing), we thought it would be a great idea to broaden that spotlight to focus on all the upcoming LIVE and IN PERSON EYS programs during THIS school year!
Be sure to visit the Calendar page to see if we're coming to a town or city near you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME...
You have influenced me tremendously to become a better musician and to appreciate not only the music from the past, but the music we have control over for the future. You have changed my life and inspired me to follow my dreams, no matter what it takes."
“Laura – I would like to thank you so much for visiting our school. You have a been an inspiration to me, and helped me to decide what i want to do for the rest of my life! i used to be afraid to sing in front of big crowds, but since you visited our school i have been so open to sing to anybody.
Thank you so much!!! You are my inspiration!!!”
“Mark, what a wonderful thing you do! I was totally amazed at the energy and intensity you exude. Your infectious enthusiasm is reflected in the children you so lovingly teach. Thank you for spending time with our kids. Needless to say my daughter Stephanie has a renewed infatuation with the classic rock songs and her violin. It was getting to the point where we were saying “at least she tried” but that is a thing of the past! I didn’t realize where her newfound interest was coming from over the last couple of days until last night. I wouldn’t have missed it for anything. I just wanted to say thank you for making a difference.”

“You ceaselessly inspire me and everyone around me. [My school] truly struck gold in discovering your program. You have contributed so much to the musician who is a critical part me… Simple thanks cannot properly measure my gratitude at this point.”
