“"Juan is a great teacher that is devoted to music and making sure the student feels confident in their abilities. I've had him ad a teacher for 6 years and through those years there wasn't a challenge that he couldn't help me overcome. He is skilled in a variety of wind instruments such as clarinet, saxophone, and flute. When teaching, he also helps you learn what you want to learn, if he doesn't have a piece that you want to play, he will write it out for you. I couldn't have asked for a better private teacher!" ”

Hello and welcome!
I am Juan Arce. I am currently accepting saxophone (alto, tenor, soprano, & bari sax), clarinet and flute students levels beginner to advanced age 9 and up, beginner trumpet students age 9 and up, and beginner piano students age 6 and up.
I have an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music from York University with a focus on Jazz Performance.
I have been teaching one on one and in groups since 2010, and working as a freelance musician since 2005 performing diverse music styles including jazz, funk, latin (salsa, cumbia, bossa nova, boleros, merengue...), classical music, rock, and pop enabling me to support what I teach with real-life performance experience.
I am also running the 'Play in a Band' program which offers group music lessons in several music ensemble formats and is open to all instruments and singers of all skill levels from children to adults. For more information on the ‘Play in a Band’ program please see the top menu.
