Hi, I'm Mr. Dombchik. I will be your instructor for the 2020-2021 school year. I have worked in the Christina School District for 28 years and this is my 26th year at Christiana High School. My course load includes 1 class of piano/music technology and music theory class. I am also the Director of Bands where I am responsible for directing the Viking Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, the Steel Drum Band and the Pit Band for the annual musical. For my second year, I will be directing the Middle School Honors Academy 8th Grade Band. I am also the Christiana High School Campus Music Department Chair and CSD Co-Music Department Chair.
I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Delaware in 1993 and completed my Master of Instruction degree from the University of Delaware's School of Education in 2011. I am proud to represent Christiana High School/Middle School Honors Academy and The Christina School District as the 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year.
Along with being a music teacher at Christiana High School and Middle School Honors Academy, I am also a private percussion instructor and freelance musician. I tend to do a lot of work in churches, jazz combos, and pit orchestras for musical theaters. I am the percussionist for Lori Citro and the Accidentals and I am a composer of original piano compositions that include several pieces about my family. I hope to record all of them someday. (After I retire!)
I have been married 21 years to my wife Dawn. We have two beautiful children: Michael and Megann.
