Do you wish you could learn techniques to help you perform like the artists you watch and listen to? If you’re a string player, do you think the only way you can play the music you like is to give up the violin, viola, cello, or bass and learn guitar? If you’re a singer, are you at a loss as to how to bridge the distance between yourself and the audience? No matter what your instrument of choice may be, EYS is here to open doors you never knew existed and give you opportunities that will change the way you view your connection to it.

Working directly with Mark Wood, Laura Kaye, and their team of Artist Mentors; ALL of whom are world-class artists who has harnessed these skills, you’ll be introduced to an entirely new creative universe laying right there in front of you. You’ll learn about improvisation and performance techniques from masters of both. Our team has years of experience in the music industry and a vast wealth of knowledge we want to share with you.

"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.”

GS, Student
