With a background in classical performance, Hoi Ting Davidson holds a BM in violin performance from the Eastman School of Music where she studied with Rochester Philharmonic concertmaster, Juliana Athayde and a MM from the University of Texas at Austin under the tutelage of renown Suzuki pedagogue, Brian Lewis. During her master’s studies, she was concertmaster and concertino soloist with the UT Symphony Orchestra and also received Suzuki teacher training with UT String Project founder Dr. Laurie Scott.
Currently, Davidson is an active educator and performer across the greater Houston region.

In addition to teaching, Davidson is currently a member of Quartetrachord, which performs their own compositions and arrangements in addition to works of the classical genre. Her freelance career has led her to perform across three continents including concerts as lead violinist on Two Cellos’ tour and for the SXSW Amazon Prime promotion of the popular TV series “Good Omens.”
