FILSCAP Campus Caravan
goes to Colegio de San Juan de Letran

Letranites surely had fun with our composer lecturer is Jazz Nicolas – the drummer, composer, and vocalist of Itchyworms and 2016 PHILPOP grand prize winner.ย ๐Ÿ‘

Jazz Nicolas on Songwriting

“Songwriting is like a muscle. The more you do it, the better you get. Sa umpisa, mahirap talaga so don’t lose hope if hindi pa ganun kaganda yung gawa mo.”

Here’s some of his tips for songwriters:
๐Ÿ‘‰ย Try to stand out. Don’t do what others are doing.ย 
๐Ÿ‘‰ย Listen to more songs even the ones you don’t usually listen to.
๐Ÿ‘‰ย Get out of your comfort zone and meet people who can help you.

 

 

 

 

He shared the story behind the creation of the the Itchyworms hit song, Beer:

His dad said they should try to write songs that Filipinos can join in and sing so he searched for Filipino songs and came back to Kundiman as inspiration.

P.S. Nope, he doesn’t like drinking beer.

 

 

 

Jamming session with a Letran chorale member for the song, “Di Na Muli”. It was an amazing experience for everyone.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Thank you for a fun afternoon, Letranites!
