5 Minutes with… Howarth Dealers | Hannah’s Oboes

We are excited to bring you a new series of interviews with our Howarth dealers from across the globe. Each fortnight we will introduce to you one of our dealers and they will answer a few questions about where you can find them, how their businesses started and their favourite Howarth instrument.

To start, we have Hannah Selznick of Hannahsoboes. Hannah has been a Howarth dealer for many years, she has a close relationship with us and a vast experience with Howarth oboes.

What is the name of your shop?

Hannahsoboes – doing business as – The Oboe Fairy

Where are you based?

Arizona, USA

Tell us about your music career!

I have been an oboist, educator and performer for 57 years! hannahsoboes is celebrating 22 years.

Why did you decide to open your shop?

I started the business because my parents couldn’t afford an oboe for me in high school. I want to help oboists access fine quality instruments at affordable prices.

What is your favourite Howarth oboe and why?

I love the new mopane oboes and the new S30c Cor Anglais is lovely. Howarth listens to players and professionals and are always interested in manufacturing the very best instruments.
