Welcome to Music with Mrs. Saylor!
Hello! I am Mrs. Alex Saylor, the music teacher at Westmont Hilltop Elementary School. I am a 2019 graduate from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with my Bachelors of Science in Education with a PreK-12 music education certification. Though this is my first year teaching at Westmont Hilltop School District, I have previous experience teaching elementary music outside of State College, Pennsylvania and in Frederick, Maryland.
I am very fortunate to have the unique opportunity to teach all K-4 students in the district to begin to develop and refine their skills and love for all things music. 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. I will enforce these basics while introducing more concepts during the following four years that they attend elementary school. Beginning in 5th grade, students will have the opportunity to join our band and orchestra program.
If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Communication is important for your child's success, and I do my best to make sure that the communication is met with all students, parents, and other teachers.
