A FOLK songwriting workshop is offered by the Placer Repertory Theater on Saturday and Sunday July 17-18 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. with professional musician and instructor Jodi Serrano, courtesy of the Rockstar Music Academy at their Lincoln facility , in California. The two-session workshop is for all levels and allows students 4 hours of instruction to learn the basics of composition and the ability to compose and share their own new songs. The registration fee for this two-session workshop is $ 50, and participants can register on Eventbrite.com.

Local entertainer and educator Jodi Serrano introduces and directs workshop participants through a hands-on experience, culminating in a chance to create and share an original song. This workshop is part of a series that gives songwriters of all skill levels the opportunity to explore multiple genres of music, lyric creation, theme development, music theory and more. Previous workshops focused on blues and pop have been well received, and participants are also looking forward to the folk workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring a portable instrument (example: guitar / ukulele), and / or their beautiful voices, and a creative spirit.

“Songwriting struck me as such a nebulous concept, but getting feedback and help from these workshops makes it a reality,” said Kevin Foster, a Pop Workshop participant.

Jodi Serrano is a graduate music teacher and has performed across the United States, from the Kamehameha School in Honolulu, HI to Carnegie Hall in New York City. She has been composing music for over 30 years and has written and arranged songs of various styles for solo and group performances.
