Mark Wood

When I was 17, I was a misfit at my high school A violin nerd who had a deep love for Led Zeppelin,. Rush, Kiss, ACDC, Zappa, and wanted to rock out! If only a camp like this existed when I was 17, I would have been all over it! I see my younger self in every kid who attends. There really is a familial atmosphere and I have made lasting friendships with campers, teachers, and fellow colleagues who are a part of this incredible experience! It is not just for string geeks; guitarists, bassists, singers, drummers, keyboard players, teachers and students of all ages are welcome! I can’t speak enough about what a game changer this week has been for so many musicians and can be for you! Mark Wood is a legendary player/teacher/composer in his own right and designed the 7-string Viper electric violin which I have been playing for two decades! I am honored and excited to be coming back for my 7th year as a faculty member at the Mark Wood Rock Orchestra Camp/Music Festival!
