Every few years, the prestigious Seiso Academy holds a prominent musical competition, and only the very best students at the Academy are allowed to participate. Though all are eligible to apply, only students from the music department actually make it to the competition...until now.
Kahoko will do anything to study under Mr. Saotome, a stern instructor who's taught generations of top performers--including Len, the musician Kahoko admires most. But to get into his class, she'll have to ace a grueling music competition. Can Kahoko play without the help of magic? And can she keep her mind on music when she learns that Len is leaving Japan?
