Ms. Bordner

Hello!  My name is Elise Bordner and I'm excited to be your child's 5th grade Band teacher this year.

I graduated from Messiah University (formerly Messiah College) in 2014 with my undergraduate degree in Music Education K-12. I also received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Messiah in 2018. 

Music is an important part of my life.  Outside of school, I teach piano lessons at Central Penn Music to students of all ages.  I serve as the Organist at Halifax United Methodist Church.  Recently, I have started working with the Cumberland Valley School of Music as the Music Director for the Winter Musical and as the summer conductor of the New Horizons Band.  

If you have any questions about band lessons, please feel free to send me an email at
