"Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.." - Plato

a note from chanel

Although born in Glendale, California, I discovered my talents and love for percussion in Lewisville, TX. At a young age, my grandmother influenced me to play the piano, which eventually led to my interest in the keyboard. Attending church on a regular basis, I became intrigued by the drummer in the church band. Since the church already had a drummer, I took the initiative to purchase my first Timbales Drum Set and taught myself how to play them in a not so traditional way.

As I continued to perfect my craft, I continued to challenge myself to play in the most unique ways. As I gained more experience and notoriety, I realized that branding myself was necessary.

 In 2010, I launched my business brand known as Ice Water Percussion. My skill set has allowed me to perform with celebrities and in venues with large, diverse crowds. I am glad you stopped by to visit my website and feel free to send me a message via the Contact Page.
