Deric's Teaching style

Deric has a very unique teaching style that sets him apart from other teachers in NYC.

He has the technical training of a skilled classical singer but has also studied theater and pop music extensively. Many teachers who teach classical singers do not understand the needs of a theater, pop, or gospel performer. They may have the technical knowledge but do not understand the style of music and the different use of the voice for those styles. On the other hand, many voice teachers that work with pop singers and Broadway performers do not have the technical background to show the singer how to sing in their own style in the healthiest way possible. Deric has found a niche by combining his technical knowledge of the voice with the stylistic needs of the theater and pop singer.

Lessons are taught in a very safe, healthy and non-intimidating environment that encourages the empowerment of the student and not the glorification of the teacher. There is no interest in making everyone sound the same. Everyone learns differently and although the technique that is used is the same for all students, the way the information is expressed is different for everyone. 

Vocal health is always of primary concern as one learns to sing at their highest possible level. Deric has worked with many doctors who specialize in singers and works with these medical professionals when students get sick. Many students have specifically come to Deric to work out health problems that have developed from unhealthy singing and other abuses of the vocal apparatus. With the advise from an otolarygologist and healthy vocal work in lessons, Deric has successfully helped many singers recover from damaged vocal cords.

Deric also teams up with Otolaryngologist Linda Dahl and presents Vocal Health and Technique Seminars. The latest seminars were sponsored by Actors Equity Association (AEA), The Screen Actors Guild Foundation (SAG-AFTRA), and The Actor's Fund in New York and were open to all current members of the unions. These in-depth presentations have been live-streamed and had global participation. Actors Equity Association has also sponsored the seminar for specific Broadway Show Companies. These presentations are customized for the needs of the individual casts. Deric has lectured and been a key-note speaker on vocal health, and led in-depth discussions on mix/belt singing at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania.

The Vocal Power Studio

The Vocal Power Studio sits right on the corner of 90th and Broadway.  Inside, a waiting area greets you to the soundproof studio space where students can wait for the previous lesson to finish. Lessons are taught in a very safe, healthy and non-intimidating environment that encourages the empowerment of the student and not the glorification of the teacher.

Life in Oz: Interview with WICKED star Ginna Claire Mason

Phindie Magazine - July 2017

"The role definitely requires a lot vocally in regards to singing and speaking. In order to do eight shows a week, I have to be very disciplined about my voice. I sleep eight hours, drink lots of water and tea, warm up before each show, utilize a personal steamer, and take voice lessons every other week via Skype with my teacher, Deric Rosenblatt."

American Songwriter - April 2017

"When I’m in town, I study with my voice teacher Deric Rosenblatt every week...The voice is a living instrument, and it changes as you age, and you need to constantly check in with it. A good voice teacher, lots of rest, breathing steam, drinking as much water as you can possibly drink, a joyful outlook, and a good diet will lead to a happy, healthy voice on the road."
