The popular program “The Art of the Singer/Songwriter” will be hosted by Signal Mountain’s Mountain Arts Community Center again this summer.
Butch “Lord of the Dulcimer” Ross and the lovely Trish Ferrell Wileman will be resuming their roles as instructors at the well-loved event. Classes will meet every Tuesday night from 6:30-8:15 p.m. starting in June and running all the way to a “Coffee House Performance” on July 14.
As always, attendees will receive instruction in vocal technique, songwriting and performance. This season, Ross and Wileman will be joined by a host of special guests, including local favorites Ryan Oyer, Amber Fults and Jim Pfitzer, to name a few. Private and personalized instruction will be available, as well as field trips to open mic events and the support of a peer network that continues long after the session’s conclusion.
“I really enjoyed the course,” says Mike Crowder, VP for Morgan Stanley and member of local band Dark Horse Ten. “Trish and Butch are great coaches, offering just the right amounts of encouragement and constructive evaluation. Since completing the course I am a more confident singer, and I’ve written a song or two every month since the sessions. Well worth the time and investment!”
