Two-Session Songwriting Workshop to be Presented by Placer Repertory Theater

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

Local performing artist and educator Jodi Serrano demonstrates and leads workshop attendees through a hands-on experience, culminating in a chance to create and share an original song. This workshop is part of a series which gives songwriters of all abilities the opportunity to explore multiple genres of music, lyric crafting, theme development, music theory, and much more. The previous workshops focused on Blues and Pop were well received, and participants are also looking forward to the Folk workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring along a portable instrument (example: guitar/ ukulele), and/or their beautiful voices, and a creative spirit.

"Songwriting seemed like such a nebulous concept to me, but getting feedback and assistance from these workshops makes it a reality," said Kevin Foster, a Pop Workshop participant.

Jodi Serrano is a credentialed 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 diverse styles for solo and group performance.
