A late starter to music, Chantelle only started playing in mid 2008. Although relatively new to music, she absolutely loves it and is a keen member of the band. After initially starting on tuned percussion with the Cranbourne Lions Concert Band, she joined the City of Greater Dandenong Band in December 2010 and has now progressed to being able to play all major percussion instruments. She also regularly helps out other bands on percussion when needed. In her own words she has found the band " ...very welcoming, and a lot of fun".
Outside of band, Chantelle is a keen photographer and very active volunteer in the local Arts community. She enjoys working backstage on amateur theatre productions, co-ordinating events and is an experienced stage manager.
