Karisa looked up, "I mostly sing but I can play guitar." She shrugged a bit.

That's okay. You'll have time to learn an instrument as we practice.
Ongaku smiled at his class.
"Well now, let's begin picking out you're instruments. Rikishi, you'll play the piano, but Nina and Karisa please look for an instrument you fancy. Karisa can pick out anything from storage, but Nina can find a nice violin to use." Ongaku picked up a bass and stood by it.

*Nina grabs the violin she was playing earlier* I'm ready Sensei

[Makoto Fujimoto]
[Mathematics]
Makoto still didn't have any students yet. It was early in the day, he was going to practice his guitar some more. He tuned it by ear - he had the skills to do so. Not a lot of people did, but he had skills. With no one there - he decided to get a little more into the music. He began to play some of the more complicated guitar riffs from his songs. He wasn't looking for attention, he was just having some fun.

Karisa slowly stood up and walked into the storage closet. She noticed a saxophone propped against the wall. She quickly lifted it up and ran her fingers over the cool brass. A sudden image flashed before her eyes and she stumbled out of the closet.

Ongaku ran to Karisa at her. He remembered something about a student with amnesia. He smiled a little bit and looked at her.
"I think the saxophone has called out to you. Looks like you've known how to play it before. Would you like to play it again?" He asked her.

Karisa looked up at him. "I-I don't know if I could do that..." She stared down at the saxophone in her hands.

"It couldn't hurt to try."
He reached for a saxophone behind her and strapped it on.
"Fallow my lead." He said with a smile. He began playing a simple jazz song and waited for Karisa to join in.

Karisa watched for a moment and then prepared to join in. Another image flashed before her eyes and she began to play. Beautiful music poured from the saxophone and after a few moments she stopped, a look of extreme excitement on her face. "I remember... I remember this." She turned to the teacher and gave him a bright genuine smile.

Ongaku smiled back and put down his sax.
" looks like you've found an old friend. You're amazing with him too." Ongaku looks at Rikishi and Nina.
"Now then, everyone's got a partner, so now all we need is practice." He walks over to the bass and taps out the tempo with his feet.
"Now then, turn in your books to Billy's bounce and let's take a dry run." He says to the group. "5..6..7..8.."

Karisa hopped up on a desk and sat dangling her legs as she played. She looked over at Nina and Rikishi, feeling a lot more at ease than she had at the start of the day.

*Nina smiled as she heard Karisa play.* "It's sure been awhile since I've heard her play. She truly is amazing." Nina thought to herself. *Nina recalls that Karisa would always play the saxophone for her to cheer her up when they were kids. Nina recalls the beautiful music Karisa played and a tear rolled down her face.*

*Nina hears Ongaku give a direction then heads to her seat and open's her textbook to Billy's Bounce* Oooooo I never heard of this one. This should be a lot of fun. *looks at Ongaku, Rikishi, and Karisa and smiles. *

Rikishi sat down at the piano and cracked his fingers. He began feeling the rhythm in his body and grinned as he translated that feeling to music. He practically jumped up with every note and grinned as he listened to the others.

Ongaku laughed at the group playing together. Their first rehearsal and they already sound like professionals. This was going to be easier than he thought.

*pops in* Music? In a Math class? You aren't Jack Black are you, because let me tell you right now I have zero musical experience and talent so I can't help you win some concert competition *reference to School of Rock Movie*.
