La Corda d'Oro, Volume 1

La Corda d'Oro, Volume 1 - Yuki Kure this manga was so cute! there's this fairy/elf thing named Lili that gives this general education girl, Kahoko Hino, a violin. Not just ANY violin, but a magical violin that anyone could play. The quality of the sound is based off of the players emotions. So Kahoko is forced by Lili to play in a musical concourse. The rest of the participants are 5 kids from the music department of her school (the departments generally don't interact and the music department is a bit stuck up). Her admittance is a shock to everyone and she's bullied about it by the music students that weren't accepted. (this will now be a short synopsis of characters with a few not too important spoilers)The other participants are Len Tsukimori, a 2nd year like Kahoko, an outstanding violin player who's parents are also musical and super famous and rich he's a bit stuck up and distant in the beginning but you grow to love him
