"I have always been hesitant to take lessons to improve my voice because I worried that formal training would change the way I sounded. I like the way I sound. With SCHOOL OF ROCK, I carry a score that is one of the biggest sings on Broadway right now and wear and tear is inevitable. Longevity became a concern. Enter Deric Rosenblatt, the sidekick I never knew I needed. With Deric and Vocal Power LLC, I am not starting from scratch, but rather utilizing the tools I have already acquired over the years. Deric is just teaching me how to sharpen those tools. These are not so much voice lessons as they are intriguing, thought-provoking, and breakthrough sessions that garner much more than just a better and healthier voice and way of singing. This is a way of life for me now. I breathe differently. I think differently. But I don't sing differently. I just sing better. I still like the way I sound. But now I will be able to like it for a hell of a lot longer."

"I began working with Deric after a long break from studying voice, and I am so glad I did. My work with Deric is consistently therapeutic and rigorous. My voice has never been stronger--his techniques encourage total vocal health, and he has a seemingly endless array of tools which he employs. But more importantly, he is a loving, supportive friend in and out of the studio. He gives with respect, energy and heart, that fuels his singers in every way."

"I have loathed going to 'singing lessons' for as long as I can remember, so I didn't go! This was until I found Deric.
Over the past year and a half working with Deric, I’ve discovered just how MY voice works. His very careful and meticulous technique has shown me how to get the absolute best sound, range & tonality from my voice. He has shown me what I am capable of giving – in fact, more than I ever thought I had.
His ear for music and his experience with singing himself makes him an impeccable teacher, and shown me the best vocal technique I have had since my career took off! I love how much I look forward to singing lessons now! Thank you Deric!"

"I had been working on Broadway when I started hearing various fellow cast members mentioning their love of Deric Rosenblatt. I noticed that every student of his had an incredibly healthy, easy, beautiful, and versatile sound; I wanted into his studio! I have only been studying with Deric for a year, but my voice has grown in ways I could have never imagined. Moreover, I have booked MULTIPLE jobs in the past year that I could not have performed before Deric. Our lessons are a highlight in my week; Deric is able to push, encourage, challenge, and refine in a safe and enjoyable environment. He truly has transformed me as a singer!"

"Deric not only has the technical knowledge of the voice, he has an uncanny instinct with which he intuits the student’s vocal mechanisms and problems that have been years in the making. He is incredibly adept at getting the student to shed old habits without changing the foundational uniqueness of their voice. I breathe easier, sing easier and live easier after working with Deric."

"Deric is an amazing voice teacher, as well as being one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Before I met deric, my voice had a rasp to it.....and I had begun to accept that the rasp was just a part of my voice. However, shortly after we began training together, I started getting compliments on how clear my voice was sounding! Even while fighting colds, my voice was developing a clarity that just wasn't there before. Today I am hitting notes that I never thought I would be able to reach, and I am working half as hard to get there!"
Broadway: Wicked (Elphaba), Rent (Maureen), Brooklyn (Brooklyn)
"Seriously. Deric Rosenblatt is one of the most caring, supportive, gracious, ass-kicking, trustworthy voice teachers EVER."
Two Time Grammy Award Winner (plus three nominations)
"Deric Rosenblatt, whom I affectionately call DR is a brilliant vocal coach and one of my dearest friends. Growing older brings changes to the vocal cords, especially mine because I have a reflux condition. Through vocal exercise and encouragement my voice can emerge strong yet sensitive. For bringing out the best in the voice I couldn't recommend anyone better! Love, Diane Schuur aka Deedles"

Interview with Phindie
"Deric is the kind of teacher who runs to Ripley Grier late at night to help you prepare for a last minute callback. He is the kind of friend who clears his evening and commutes to Yankee stadium, so he can help you warm you up to sing the National Anthem in front of thousands. He is the kind of mentor who shows up at your Broadway debut to cheer you on and take notes, so he can help you improve your performance.
If you think you are simply going to a voice lesson when you step into Vocal Power Studios, you are mistaken.
My lesson time with Deric always presents inspirational challenges to the body, mind, and spirit. He possesses amazing clairvoyant skills to read into your soul and help identify those things that are happening (or failing to happen) physically, which allows you to sing your best.
My years of training with Deric have allowed my voice to reach new heights. He is a kind, loving, intuitive, generous, wise, thoughtful, inviting, and precise teacher. He sacrifices everything for the well-being of his students."
Broadway Composer/Lyricist and Acclaimed Acting Teacher
"I have recommended Deric Rosenblatt to many of my musical acting students over the past decade, and along with being thanked endlessly by those I've sent to Deric, I've gotten to see them grow immeasurably as singers under his guidance. He is dedicated, patient, upbeat and knowledgeable, and is always working to become even better at what he does, to help you, the singer, be the best you can be."
Brandyn Day"Deric Rosenblatt is by far the most talented voice teacher in New York City. Not only has he transformed my voice, but he has given me the confidence to sing rep I’d thought impossible a year ago. I’ve been with Deric a little over a year, and I can say with 100% honesty he is more than just a teacher. He is a friend, a mentor, and vocal expert. When I’m not in lessons, if I feel I need something, I know that Deric is just a text away. One hour with Deric and you’ll be addicted to his teaching style and methods. Give him a shot—he won’t disappoint."
