As the daughter of global music superstars, Melody Trumpet was supposed to be extraordinary - a melodic genius to carry on the Trumpet legacy.

Ten years on, Melody is still kept away from the world in Trumpet Manor. If only secrets could stay hidden…

For Melody Trumpet, it's about finding the  extraordinary in ordinary!


Imagine being born into the wealthiest family in town, with incredible musical genius parents. They are adored around the world, and there are even statues of them in town.

Melody is their daughter, destined to be extraordinary. But Melody has tried every instrument, and even with years of individual coaching, it has not changed a thing  -  she has zero musical talent!

Now, with her debut gala performance looming, Melody’s teacher abruptly leaves her school and her life. This gives Melody time to find two friends, something that she has never been allowed to have for fear of her secret being revealed to the world.

These friends help Melody discover her true hidden talent  -  and we all have at least one! Her parent’s fraud is exposed to the world and Melody has finally found her true calling.
