WELCOME TO MATKAT MUSIC!

Matkat Music is the brainchild of Charles Schiermeyer - a teacher, composer and performer currently living in New York City. Originally from Seattle, Charles moved to NYC in 2003 to study with Grammy award winning composer Michael Abene. He graduated with a Bachelors & Masters degree in Composition from Manhattan School of Music. He plays all saxophones, piano, flute, clarinet, guitar, and some trumpet.

 

What he's best known for is his amazing talent at crafting amazingly inspired and complex horn and string arrangements. He's been nominated twice for his horn and string arrangements on two gospel albums: Amazing [Live] by Ricky Dillard & Vintage Worship by Anita Wilson.
