In Denmark Per Salo has studied Esther Vagning and John Damgaard, and in Italy with Professor Mirtia Herrera. From 1987 until 1989 he studied at the Juilliard School of Music in New York.

After studies abroad Per Salo competed for admission to the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, where he was engaged to play piano, organ and harpsichord.
