We believe in the importance of creating a unique global village for string players.

You are not just customers to us; you are family, and we pride ourselves in treating each and every one of you with the respect and dedication that you all deserve when pursuing your musical dreams. Here are Mark’s endeavors, all intended to enhance and empower YOU and the musicians in your life.

Find yourself at MWROC. It’s so much more than the music.

MWROC Music Festival is a week-long experience where attendees are immersed in cultivating self-expression through improvisation, performance, and the latest technology; and where they get to put all their new tools to use in a grand finale international rock orchestra concert event – open to the public – on the festival’s last night.

We’ve helped hundreds of musicians, students and adults, to discover their own voice – not only as players but as PEOPLE. We believe that the art of building confidence in your own unique powers of self-expression is KEY to making your way in the world.

Come to MWROC and celebrate the greatness of YOU!
