Music Room

Dear Parents:

My name is Dominic Leak. I’m the new music teacher here at Poinsettia Elementary. I am extremely thrilled and honored to be teaching at a great school and district. I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out and say hello and talk a bit about Poinsettia’s Music Program. I plan to use a cumulative and comprehensive curriculum that focuses on different musical styles, instruments, history, music theory. This will include playing different instruments, learning to sing a variety of songs, proper technique, identifying rhythms, notes and interval. 

Expectations for the class are as follows: 

Make wise choices so you and others can learn 

Use good manners and be respectful of others 

Speak, sing and play when directed by your teacher 

Involve yourself in all activities 

Care for others and the music equipment 

Music at Poinsettia is a place where students will learn about music in various forms, spark their passions, and participate in activities that will further their musicianship and appreciation of the art. My goal is to ensure that every student has a rewarding experience and will be fun, active, confident regardless of their musical ability. 

My classroom environment will be a safe place where any and all students will be able to express themselves musically. 

Thank you so much! I am so excited to meet all of you and work with your kids for a fun, successful and musically empowered year! I’m thrilled to be a Panther!
