New Music Studio Opens

Deborah Saidel

Follow That Flute, a woodwind studio, is now open in Lakeside. Deborah Saidel, MM, a seasoned performer and educator in Central Virginia, welcomes students of all levels and ages on flute, saxophone and clarinet. In addition to individual lessons, trio ensembles of like instruments will be available for intermediate and advanced players to participate in public performance options.

Bruce Swartz, a band director in Henrico County for 38 years, says, “I have known Deb Saidel for 20 years, both as a professional woodwind player and as a private music instructor. Her playing is top-drawer in all styles of music and her teaching abilities are of the highest order. She has instructed many of my students over the years and they rank as the best of the best in my programs. I highly recommend her.”

In addition to teaching, Saidel is dedicated to bringing live music into therapeutic venues, meditation sessions and life transitions such as births, hospice and memorials, as well as at weddings, celebrations, special events, religious services, theater, restaurants and public recitals. She teaches a Women in Music class at VCU and lectures upon request.
