Enjoy a sonic-tonic!
Classical flute soloist, Chamber Music player, Orchestra member, Pit musician -reeds, Jazz, World & Folk Music performer
The decision to commit to my musicianship, no matter what life presented, was one of the first big choices I made by myself, from deep within myself, and for myself. It felt right. This notion of musicianship is not confined to acquiring music-making skills or building a career, but rather, speaks to a way of experiencing life, a life of being engaged with a very personal relationship with sound. Freelance work with my business, Follow That Flute, Inc., has kept monotony at bay with no regrets.

"Deb Saidel makes you question why flutists are still on the fringes of jazz.. This straight-ahead acoustic trio set a perfect spare setting for the flute, allowing an open sound so the audience can appreciate each lushly whispered note."
