Natalie joined the City of Greater Dandenong band in early 2014. She grew up in a musical home, with her two parents and older brother singing, playing guitar and piano. Naturally she followed in their footsteps: piano aged 7, picked up guitar/ukulele and singing a year later, and finally, in 2009 with the Wonthaggi Citizen’s Band, picked up the tenor horn and she hasn't looked back since. In her last year with W.C.B., she helped to tutor beginning brass band members (mostly primary school students).
Natalie has moved interstate four times throughout her life, growing up predominantly in Brisbane, settling finally in Melbourne with her husband Brad. She is now Mum to two beautiful boys, Reuben and Arlo. In her spare time, Natalie enjoys watching the football, eating Italian food and reading.
