Peter Stoll is a musician in Toronto, Canada, playing all sizes of the clarinet family and saxophone, for symphonic and opera orchestras, new music ensembles, and in freelance chamber concerts as well as solo recitals. He teaches privately, and at the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, where, in addition to clarinet lessons, Peter coaches chamber music, teaches a woodwind performance class, and runs a course in the Business of Music.
