ATTENTION STRING PLAYERS!!!
Joe Deninzon to teach at Mark Wood’s Rock Orchestra Camp this summer!
I am excited to be returning as a faculty member at Mark Wood’s Rock Orchestra Camp. Mark Wood was the designer of the 7-string fretted Viper Electric violin that I play. He is a legendary performer who has played with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Dee Snyder, and Billy Joel, to name a few. He is also a true revolutionary in the world of electric violin and string education. The camp will take place at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, KS from July 14-20, 2012.
