Téa began studying Suzuki violin at age 7 with Rebecca Buchanan in Carrboro, NC. Soon thereafter, she performed with the Triangle Youth Ensemble lead by Dr. Edith Gettes. Téa’s love of classical music continued to grow, and she joined MYCO, a pre-college chamber music and chamber orchestra performance group under the artistic direction of Yoram Youngerman, Mimi Solomon, and Nicholas DiEugenio (http://www.mycomusic.org). Téa’s violin studies continued under the guidance of Jennifer Curtis (https://www.jennifercurtisviolin.com/about) and Shelley Livingston of Duke University Strings School (https://stringschool.duke.edu/shelley-livingston). In August of 2020, Téa picked up a viola for the first time and began to study with Simon Ertz later that fall (https://music.arts.ncsu.edu/facultystaff/simon-ertz/). Currently, Téa plays viola with the Duke University Strings School.
