Adventures in Writing Camp is excited to return to Summerlin this summer, in our new home on the campus of Doral Academy Red Rocks! We have new curriculum this summer for all three programs (first grade, elementary, and middle school). Musical Mark and his team of credentialed teachers, musicians and college students is ready to help new campers build confidence and fall in love with writing, and help returning campers continue to develop as writers!
MEET THE TEAM
Mark J Leamy, Site Administrator
Mark Leamy is the Music Specialist at Doral Academy Red Rock in Las Vegas, and is a published author.
We are singing with joy that he is returning for his fifth summer with the team! “Musical Mark” (as he is affectionately known at Adventures in Writing Camp) began his musical training at an early age, starting with piano and adding the rest of the instruments (yep, pretty much all of them) as he went along. He completed his Music Education degree at Western Baptist College, adding a M.Ed. from Lesley University. Conducting and performing internationally, he deepened a love for ethnic musical styles and incorporates them into his teaching.
A published poet and author, Musical Mark enjoys blending traditional pedagogy with current and world styles, with a touch of parody to keep things fun. Along the way, he has made use of his composition, arranging and songwriting skills, recording two albums (“Infusion” and “The Lazarus Project”) which reflect his jazz influences. He has worked with several youth theater productions, directing Broadway Jr. shows as an elementary school teacher and serving as vocal arranger/coach for the Las Vegas Centennial production of John Rothman’s “Tapestry”.
With his wife (also an author) and three daughters (the Artist, the Dancer and the Comedienne) he finds himself in a whirlwind world of creativity. An incorrigible wordsmith, he delights in enhancing an almost embarrassingly large vocabulary, adding new languages to his lexicological arsenal and speaking of himself in the third person. He’s pretty awesome, if he does say so himself. And he does.
