Ms. Sumner graduated from Lynchburg College in 2010 with a degree in instrumental/choral music education. She received her master's degree in instrumental conducting from Lynchburg College in 2012. She is a licensed music educator, grades K-12. She has taught piano, aural skills, and woodwind ensemble classes at the collegiate level as well as middle school band and elementary general music. Ms. Sumner is a fantastic performing musician with an extensive playing résumé, having regularly performed with the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra, Lynchburg Symphony Youth Orchestra, Randolph College Wind Symphony, Sweet Briar College ensembles, Lynchburg College Wind Ensemble, DC Pride Band, and over 15 musicals in the Lynchburg, Bedford, Roanoke, Fairfax, Richmond, and Farmville areas. She also teaches private lessons. Ms. Sumner handled Mrs. Berkley's maternity leave back in 2014 when Leigh had her second son, Callan. We are happy to have her on board helping to continue the growth and success of our performing instrumental ensembles.
