Jaclyn Bradley, founder of Rock Town, is thrilled to have built a music academy in her hometown. With a master’s degree in music, the international singer/songwriter has been a contestant on The Voice of Holland and Ireland’s Got Talent. She and her music have been featured on VH1, MTV, HGTV, Bravo and TLC. Jaclyn created Rock Town with the aim of offering high-quality, performance-based lessons that build tremendous skill and confidence. Her students become multifaceted, technically sound vocalists who receive immense joy from sharing their song. Jaclyn is also a board-certified music therapist who led the largest study in history to bring live music into the operating room.
Piano lessons don’t have to be boring. Richard Olin has been playing piano and keyboard for over 13 years. He learned early on that lessons centered around songs students know and love makes all the difference.
Combining technical and music-reading basics with playing to their favorite songs, Richard’s students become well-rounded artists who not only learn a lasting skill but also cultivate a lifelong enjoyment and passion for music.
Dougie Manross is a guitar player / audio engineer / producer based out of Cleveland, Ohio. A protégé of local legend, Billy Morris, Dougie made his on-stage debut with Morris at age 12. Since then, Dougie has made quite a name for himself in the Northeast Ohio music scene. His teaching style focuses on giving students the essential building blocks of guitar playing by intertwining basic techniques that apply to the student’s own musical tastes. Dougie currently plays guitar for country rock band Bronx Country, but he also performs on occasion with Billy Morris’ “Sunset Strip,” among many other popular local area bands and artists. Aside from playing guitar, Dougie also manages Audio Bay Studios, a pro recording and live streaming studio in Bay Village.
