Teodora Adzharova was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and began piano study at age 7. By the time she graduated from High School, she had won both national and international competitions in Bulgaria, France, Germany, Macedonia and the Czech Republic. After several years at the Conservatory in Bulgaria, she came to the United States to study with Neil Rutman on full scholarship at the University of Central Arkansas. An Assistantship in keyboard studies enabled her to attend the Peabody Conservatory of Music. After completing a Master's Degree at Peabody, she joined the Peabody faculty to teach Keyboard Studies. The following year she entered the DMA program.
In 2016 she was selected along with cellist Mauricio Rey Gallego to be the first chamber music duo in a Peabody-UMBC partnership in exploring innovative concert formatting, which included a master class and an audience involved performance at UMBC Linehan Concert Hall. Teodora is a co-founder and the pianist of the Thomas-Adzharova saxophone and piano duo, currently working on releasing their first album exploring the music of 20th century American composers.
She is the Accompanying Coordinator at Peabody, as well as an Associate faculty in keyboard studies. Her principal teacher is Ellen Mack.
