Changed lines 21-24 from:

Find a soggetto (theme) from a non-canon piece of music. Create a canon in jMusic (using the soggetto and canonic devices, retrograde, inversion, augmentation, and/or diminution).

Note that not all melodic lines can be used as canon soggettos. Bach was an expert in doing this. The trick is to use melodies that mainly emphasize triadic pitches (pitches from the tonic triad). For example, think of the soggettos for "Row, Row your Boat" and "Frère Jacques".
