Matthew Lemieux

Matthew Lemieux is a musician, composer, and educator with a background in battery percussion. Originally from Cary, NC, he was first exposed to rudimental drumming on the drumline at Cary High School, under the tutelage of SCV-alum Will Goodyear.

He was a performer with the world-class WGI ensemble Constitution in 2008, and as an undergraduate student, he marched with the NC State Power Sound of the South marching band, serving as drumline captain for two years. During this time, he worked closely with instructor John Antonelli to develop and refine the line’s exercise program and performance repertoire. Outside of school, he assisted John as a battery instructor for the Athens Drive High School marching band and indoor drumlines from 2009–2011. Matthew received his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from North Carolina State University in 2011.


After moving to Utah to continue his education, he remained involved in the marching arts, serving as the snare drum instructor for Weber State Indoor Percussion (now Gold Spike Percussion) for the 2014 and 2015 seasons, consulting for high school programs in the Carolinas, and curating FatMattDrums.com, a massive repository of original drumline cadences, warm-ups, and exercises. Matthew earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from The University of Utah in 2017. He works as a polymer chemist in Southern California, where he lives with his wife, Jessica, and their amazing daughter, Kimmy.
