Sandya Kola

Young Sandhya Kola has been studying violin nearly all her life—since she was four. Residing in an area with limited opportunity to study Western Classical traditions, Sandhya fed her passion through self-study and through Skype-based lessons. She is currently a grade 12 student at The International School Bangalore and plans to focus on music at university. Sandhya believes music is not only a means of self-expression but also a unique means of self-realization and introspection.
