Graham Salter is one of Britain’s most widely experienced oboists, teachers and coaches. He held the position of Cor Anglais at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden after that of Principal Oboe in the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, records in the film studios, and has performed as a guest with every major orchestra in Britain. A former Editor for BDRS / DRN, he gives masterclasses and tuition widely, plays recitals choosing between five sizes of the modern oboe, and appears regularly as a concerto soloist.
