Day 12 of Music Challenge “By Me”
The 30 Day Music Challenge gets personal with a request for each participant to compose on day 12.

You can write music without knowing a stitch about notation or harmony or instruments. Here are some free, fun music-making online tools for creating your composition. Of course, if you want you can also write your music the old-fashioned way – pencil on manuscript paper at the piano.
