Mark Wood began playing children’s music in 1989 when his
daughter, Lacey began pre-school. Soon thereafter, Mark became a staple in the
Newport Mesa Unified School District, playing for and teaching K-6 grade
students all the great songs from the past including "Oh My Darling,
Clementine", "Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built For Two)" and "Oh! Susanna". He also stayed true to
old favorites such as "Down By The Bay", "Old MacDonald Had A Farm", "The Hokey Pokey" and
others. These great tunes inspired Mark's original children's songs, "The Snap",
"Snap Snap-A-Long Song" and "Just Read", which was featured and
performed with his students on the local PBS show, Real Orange.
"Just Read" later became the primary song used to promote reading by
PTAs in more than twenty states. Mark has been performing for children
internationally for nearly twenty years and always has the same result: lots of
smiles, singing and a great time had by ALL!
