Having grown up in a musical family with her mother a professional violinist, Hallie Chandola has been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. She learned how to play Suzuki piano at the age of three, and later percussion and string instruments from when she was six years old. In high school she joined the band playing flute. She graduated as a music performance major from Interlochen Arts Academy and afterwards went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweis Conservatory and played with the Prague Film Orchestra under the direction of Jiri Korynta, excelling in her performance career. Deciding that performing was not fulfilling enough to balance her love of three instruments, she decided to pursue a teaching career. She learned about the Suzuki Method in Europe, which led to becoming a teacher at Unison World School in Dehradun, India for the Flutes and Strings classes in grades 3-12. In 2012 she moved with her family to Tampa, FL, where she balances her performance career with her thriving private studio, as well as homeschooling her two young boys.
In 2015, she completed the Every Child Can! course for Suzuki Talent Education. In 2018, she completed her Suzuki Book 1 training in Guelph, Ontario with Kelly Williamson at the Great Lakes Suzuki Flute Institute, and in 2019 she completed the Suzuki Book 2 training with Noelle Perrin. She is actively pursuing further education with the Suzuki Method. Hallie Chandola is currently the violin teacher for the Violin After-School program at Sunlake Academy of Math and Science, an active performer and director for Elegant Strings, a contracted teacher for Takelessons.com, and an active member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas and the Florida Flute Association, as well as managing and teaching for Hallie's Studio.
