PhilPop 2021 adapts to the new normal with digital songwriting bootcamp

PhilPop returns this year with a digital bootcamp that puts a spotlight on up-and-coming
songwriters and composers in the Philippines.

Now ready to implement a more inclusive but intensive approach to mentorship and training, the
country’s premier songwriting institution will be holding a 14-week program for aspiring
participants to learn and further hone their skills in the field of songwriting, marketing and
branding, recording and arrangement, intellectual property rights, music appreciation, and more.
Dubbed “PhilPop 2021 DigiCamp: Music Breaking Borders,” the songwriting mentorship
campaign will push through in a virtual setting to adapt to the new normal and offer a positive
learning experience for attendees even at the comforts of their home.

With the challenges of mounting a bootcamp in the time of pandemic, PhilPop remains
committed in being at the forefront of empowering the future generation of recording stars and
industry professionals, and ensure that these dreams and aspirations are not halted even by
unfavorable circumstances. “We decided to carry on with the camp because we feel, more than
ever, now is the perfect time to reach out to a lot of songwriters who are constrained at home
due to the pandemic, PhilPop Executive Director Dinah Remolacio said in a statement. “Artists
are becoming more productive and creative at home, and we believe that the digital sphere will
enable PhilPop to reach these special group of people who want to further educate themselves
and who want to be mentored in pursuing their dreams.”

PhilPop Program and Marketing Manager Gab Cabangon explains that apart from the technical
requirements such as preparing and updating the website for the DigiCamp, PhilPop is also
collaborating with some of the coaches and partners in creating a music curriculum and
program suited to a virtual environment. “This includes developing pre-recorded lectures,
brainstorming exercises that can be done online, and identifying the ideal session format for
each topic. Teaching and mentoring online requires a shift in how we approach the camp this

This year’s coaches, mentors, speakers, and consultants include some of the biggest names in
the music industry such as Ryan Cayabyab, Noel Cabangon, Thyro Alfaro, Marlon Barnuevo,
Trina Belamide, Jungee Marcelo, Ben&Ben’s Paolo and Miguel Guico, and more.
Apart from the transition from a physical camp to a digital camp, Gab Cabangon takes pride of
PhilPop’s more expansive programming that were not included in the previous iteration of the
songwriting workshop. He shares, “The DigiCamp this year will also include benefits such as
music production and music release opportunities for fellows who participate in this program.
Lastly, there’s going to be a lot more concrete outputs that will be expected from the songwriters
who will apply for this program.”
