I have been a student of Nick's for 5+ years. Nick is super-organized, very motivating and has an incredible knowledge of drumming. Nick is truly " World Class" . Hagerstown is very fortunate to have such a fantastic drum instructor.

My 9 year old started taking lessons about 6 months ago. Nick is great with him. He is encouraging and challenges him. Would highly recommend his lessons to anyone at any age.

My son is taking lessons from Nick now and we can't be more pleased with Nick's teaching. I would absolutely recommend Nick for anyone that wants to learn how to play the drums.

Best instructor any drummer could ask for. I have taken lessons with Nick since 7th grade and I highly recommend his lessons to anyone looking to learn how to be a skilled and educated drummer. He taught me how to read sheet music of snare pieces and drummer pieces, all varieties of genres and rudiments. I leave every lesson with a feeling of improvement and would give Nick way more than 5 stars if possible. Thanks for everything you have taught Nick! I don't know where I would be without Ya!

My daughter started taking lessons with Nick about 5 months ago while she was still 5 years old. He is very easy going and has kept her very interested in her instrument. He is very easy to talk to and has an amazing sense of humor. I highly recommend him as an instructor for anyone of any age!

Nick, thank you so much for the great lessons you've given Clayton. I'm so impressed with the talent and desire to play.. I'm sure he'll want to be drumming on his desk at college.. Thanks again!

I took drum lessons with Nick Dahlberg for 5+ years, over which I learned much more than drumming technique. Nick creates an environment for learning with his humor, focus, and organization. With Nick I learned how to manage my time better and improve my playing. I recommend Nick to a person of any skill level, there is no defined path, he customizes everything to the individual student. Thank you, Nick!

I want to thank you for all your support in my music as well as with life. The lessons I have learned from you have helped mold me into the person I am today. I have always and always will enjoy drumming. Drumming will always be one of my passions. I wish you all the best in life and I hope all of your students understand how blessed they are to have such a wonderful teacher as you!

I took lessons with Nick for five years and he taught me from the roots of basic drumming up to advanced studies. Nick is an awesome and Inspiring teacher that helped open my eyes to new music styles, solos, techniques, and skill that I still use in my drumming today. Nick taught me how to read music and understand it in different music styles. Nick also corrected my music I wrote and suggest to make beyond regular beat that It was with skills he taught me. Nick is a funny, nice, patient, caring, encouraging and helped me focus on drumming when I went though hard times. He is a very awesome drummer and teacher. When I first started taking his listen I was a shy kid. He helped build my confidence that I have now. Nick teaches all songs you want to learn and show you new songs you never thought were possible. Highly recommend any skill level of drummer should take lesson with Nick. Thank you for everything you taught me over the years.

My son took lessons from Nick for two ½ years (and hopefully, when the schedule allows, will again).

We couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! Not only is Nick a very talented teacher, he is also a great role model and mentor. He is very patient and flexible. Spends extra time with students when they may be going through a rough patch.

I highly recommend Nick as a teacher. Hagerstown is lucky to have such a gifted musician that is available for lessons.

I took lessons for 6+ years from Nick, and it was phenomenal. Easily one of my most lasting learning experiences ever.

There's honestly not enough room to say all the positive things about his lessons. They're organized, challenging, and custom suited to each student (during high-school days he helped me compose a drum-solo for my school's Jazz Band concert, he taught me the parts to some of my favorite songs, etc.) You'll be exposed to more techniques, styles, tips and tricks than you could ever imagine.

He's informative, encouraging, and hilarious - a real class act and role model. I highly recommend him to drummers of ANY skill level.

I took drum lessons from Nick for 2 years. I can not say enough good things about him. He is experienced, possess awesome technical skills, professional, patient, easy going, has a sense of humor, and very knowledgeable about the music industry. I love his methodical teaching style. He will help you achieve your goals quickly. Give him any tune and he will teach you how to play it. For anyone interested in drum lessons, Nick Dahlberg is your go to guy!!!

I have had the pleasure of being taught by Nick (Dahlberg) for over three years. NIck is an outstanding teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable, motivating , and organized. But even more importantly, he is passionate about drumming. If you are looking for a drum instructor, I recommend Nick without reservation.
