WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED
What I learned today is what a fill in note was and how to put in music and how to put it in my own type of music to not make it better but for it to sound good . The most enjoyed part of today is that I got to experiment the fill in note in my music and see if it matched my music and it did so I kept it in my music.
