Lady Octavia’s is not your average music school. At this academy, students are expected to master dangerous weapon-instrument hybrids, and Pitch’s mother, the late Sonata Remington, was the best drum major the school has ever known.
Twelve-year-old Pitch dreams of following in her mother’s footsteps. But when a competition for first chair threatens her place at the academy, Pitch must unravel the mysteries of her mother’s past to master the secrets hidden within her piccolo. The more Pitch investigates, the more she realizes that sinister forces haunt Lady Octavia’s halls, and Sonata might not have been a hero after all.
