  • A successful solo artist and published author, Wood’s absolute passion is music education. His innovative program Electrify Your Strings (EYS) - now in its 11th year - is an intensive rock and roll workshop for school music education departments that boosts student self-esteem and motivation and helps raise money for music education.Today EYS visits upwards of 60 schools per year and there is a waiting list of schools wanting to participate. The organization has been featured on The Today Show and CBS Evening News and in countless local media outlets. But for Wood, it’s all about the kids. He’s dedicated to providing educators with the opportunity to ignite their students’ passions and to inspiring students to open their minds and unlock their potential.
