Starting Description

When Meg can’t play her song properly and blames the music, the frustrated notes hop off the sheet, leaving Tune Town without any tunes … on the day of the big concert! Seeking somewhere to belong, the notes travel far away to experience different styles of music, but something’s missing.

Ending Description

With no music to play, Tune Town hums Meg’s song with a sense of longing. The notes hear the melody and feel the emotion — the missing link! Back home, the notes reassure Meg, If you’re having fun then you’re playing all right. No longer worried, Meg relaxes into the song and enjoys her performance.
