Are you interested in developing your flute playing?
I have a pedagogic degree in flute teaching from SMI in Stockholm and have taught alot through out the years, both private students and officially at SMI, Södra Latin as well as municipal schools around Sweden. I teach mostly flute, piano, music theory and improvisation. One of my specialities is that I also do workshops in flute improvisation and how to develop your own creativity which I believe is very fun and important to share with others.
It is you who decide what you want to focus on, how to get a better tone, breathing, your own creative work or technique. Maybe you want to have a better insight in interpretation or some specific composer or genre that you wish to know more about.
As a classical schooled flutist, I also have a niche in that I have improvised and played a lot of jazz. For you who want to elaborate on your improvisation, can also get help with that.
If you live in another part of the world, I give Skype lessons and I always tailor-make every setup with every student, all levels and ages are welcome!
I teach mostly in Stockholm but also in other parts of Sweden and internationally. Please contact me if you are interested in flute lessons or some other subject on the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Below you can read about my students appreciation and judgements:
Magnus has helped me to take my fluteplaying to a new level! After 3 terms with a beginners group, I wanted to develop my playing technique further and I have really got help with that. Magnus is skilled in guiding every small step which is needed to make the playing better. Every lesson gives new inspiration thanks to Magnus encouragement and instructive advice. I have got a complete new interest for the flute and the progression has made my playing more fun.
16 years ago I started with piano lessons. The piano teacher I had at the time, never demanded anything from me or rarely gave homework which resulted in a slow development. The time between the lessons increased. In that moment a friend told me about Magnus Båge and I started studying jazz piano with him. What a difference! It is now almost 3 years ago and I am looking forward to each lesson as the highlight of the week. I have developed enormously and to play the piano has become my fuel thanks to Magnus amazing ability to teach. And that he is one of the nicest and most humble persons I have ever met, doesn’t make it worse. Choose your hypnotizers with concern. Choose Magnus Båge!

I got the possibility to begin with Magnus as a teacher as a 12 year old when I earlier joined the municipal school in Lidingö. The teacher I had, did not encourage or helped me to develop much. When I started working with Magnus a whole new part of the music world opened up, where he not only inspired and gave good advice but also listened to my own taste of music. After a long summer vacation in 2016, I lost a bit of the joy to play the piano but after one lesson with Magnus I am again more inspired to actually play alot at home and enjoy it.

I have played flute with Magnus for a year and I am very happy that I found him as a flute teacher. I have done great progress that I couldn’t believe was possible in a very short period of time. I think it is because Magnus is giving me real tools how to work with the flute and a piece of music. He has a very good and strong feeling for what I need and on what level he can work on. The lessons and the pieces I get are always challenging, but they are all the time reasonable and I feel proud when I have mastered a difficulty. Every time I go from his lessons filled with energy and joy over my instrument. I want to recommend him wholeheartedly!
Standing ovation after the premiere of my Missa Brevis in St Birgitta church! The musicians and the choirs did a wonderful job and the audience were very moved by the performance. It was one of the greatest moments in my life. THANKYOU Västerleds community, all musicians and the two churchchoirs for a great performance! Listen to the music at "compositions" and scroll down!
