Lage Lund ’00 gives a master class with students from the Guitar Department at Berklee College of Music.

Armed with a mastery of standard repertoire and a growing, impressive body of original compositions, Lund swings with great authority, displaying a staggering harmonic sophistication and a singularly fluid voice as a soloist. He also brings a “casually magnetic” presence to the stage, “channeling reticence into a whisper-quiet mystique,” according to the New York Times.

Lund has been hailed by Pat Metheny as a favorite young guitarist, and is “all music and all soul” according to Russell Malone—one of the judges who awarded Lund top prize in the 2005 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition.

Born and raised in Skien, Norway, Lund relocated to Boston, Massachusetts, when he received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music. In 2002, he moved to New York City, and soon became the first electric guitarist to enroll at the Juilliard School of Music.

He has become a sought-after sideman with the David Sanchez Quartet, the Maria Schneider Orchestra, and the Mingus Orchestra, and has been fortunate enough to work with artists such as Ron Carter, Mulgrew Miller, Gretchen Parlato, Marcus Strickland, and Will Vinson.
