I Had Mr. Leahey for varsity choir in the early 90's. Class of 94. Was the best part of my day. Fun, talented, great experience. Helped pave the way for me to get into julliard. I'll never forget him.

Leahey is one of the most down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is teachers in the school. Anyone able to spend time with him is lucky cuz he's really fun. Too bad he's done with musicals

While I loved choir, I can't say I got more from it than memories. Leahey, while funny, needs to teach the whole class, not just his favorites.

He doesn't encourage people to excell, and is very opinionated. (not to mention plays favorites) All in all, I learned very little from him.

Has his favorites, and if you're one of them, congrats. If not, forget it. But still, he's very good at what he does.

Leahey rocks. He's the reason I keep on living. I was in his class about 4 years ago and we still keep in touch. Mainly, b/c he still owes me money.
