I saw Mark Wood perform up close, met him, talked to him, and had my picture taken with him. What a thrill! He travels around the country to high schools as part of his Electrify Your Strings program, and he was at a school not very far from me.
I’ve mentioned him in past posts, and several tracks from his CD’s are on Violin Bitch’s playlist.
I love what he is doing, getting kids excited about rock music with strings. What he is doing is the reason for my deciding to go in the direction I am.
I told him of my difficulty in finding someone to teach me what he does. He told me there are seminars (or whatever he called them) around the country for teachers.
Which I am definitely looking into.
