A long-time Milwaukee resident, Nick Lang earned a BFA in classical percussion from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2010. He then went on to obtain a MM in Jazz Studies from Indiana University, studying with world-renowned educator, Steve Houghton. Since returning to Milwaukee, Nick has kept a very busy performance schedule, lending his talents to a wide variety of musical acts. He currently performs with the alt-country group Buffalo Gospel, and folk/Americana groups Derek Pritzl & the Gamble, and Long Mama. He also plays with Blues-rock trio Blind Fiction, as well as jazz-fusion group Matchstick. In addition, Nick also stays active with freelance work with many groups, including the Milwaukee Symphony POPS Orchestra.

In addition to live performance, Nick also devotes a large part of his schedule to education. From beginner to advanced, hobbyist to professional, he brings a curriculum that is heavily steeped in real-world application and demands. Along with private lessons at his home, and at several area schools, Nick is currently teaching private lessons as well as lectures at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC).
