Mrs. Alex Saylor
Hello! My name is Mrs. Alex Saylor, the new band director and music teacher at Berlin Brothersvalley School District. I graduated in 2019 from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BSEd Degree and a PreK-12 Music teaching certification. Though this is my first year at Berlin, I have previous experience teaching band and K-6 music in State College and Johnstown. I currently live with my husband and our cats in Davidsville, PA.
I teach K-2 and 7th grade general music, as well as all students in grades 5-12 who are enrolled in our band program. Starting in kindergarten, students will learn both new and familiar music concepts, such as keeping a steady beat, simple rhythms, singing together as a group, playing instruments, and basic music theory. These basics will be reinforced while more concepts are introduced during the following years when they have general music class. Beginning in 5th grade, students have the option to join our band and choir programs.
If you ever have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Communication is key to your child's success and I do my best to keep an open line with families, teachers, and students.
