Sherrie Maricle, born Sharon Lee Maricle on September 2, 1963 in Buffalo, New York, is an American jazz drummer and educator.

Sherrie began her journey in music playing clarinet in fourth grade — moved to cello and eventually started playing the drums in sixth grade after witnessing Buddy Rich perform. After high school she began her professional music career, performing locally with Slam Stewart while attending Binghamton University — earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1985. Sherrie continued her education when she moved to New York City, completing a Masters of Arts in Jazz Performance in 1986 at New York University. A few years later she was appointed director of percussion studies at NYU and went on to receive a Doctorate of Philosophy in Jazz Performance/Composition in 2000.

Sherrie has three bands that she leads from the drum set — her big band, DIVA, her quintet, FIVE PLAY, and The DIVA Jazz Trio. She also performs regularly with The New York Pops and is the music director for Broadway star, Maurice Hines. As an educator and teacher, Sherrie has created and runs the Musical Magic hospital outreach program for The Ronald McDonald House in New York. She also operates a private drum set and percussion studio, serves as a conductor for The New York Summer Festival and is an active clinician for Yamaha Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Aquarian Drum Heads and Vic Firth Drum Sticks. Sherrie also stays busy working as a freelance performer and a published composer/arranger.
