''[[http://www.soulsymphonycomic.com/ Soul Symphony]]'' is an UrbanFantasy {{Webcomic}} about a girl named Olivia who is chosen to help her fellow students deal with stress and anxiety, despite her hatred for other teenagers. She's chosen when a spirit named [[SpiritAdvisor Carl]] suddenly appears out of her clarinet and demands that she clear her school of negative energy. She then does this by [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind teleporting]] into worlds inside students' souls and defeating monsters that represent bad emotions.

She defeats them using the [[MagicMusic power of music]] of course.

!!This comic provides examples of:
* AllJustADream: [[OrWasItADream Orso]] [[http://soulsymphonycomic.com/comics/caught-up-to-speed/ John thinks.]]
* ArtEvolution: It's fairly new but from the first page to the latest, it's clearly visible.
* BlackBeadEyes: All of the characters have this, going along with the art style.
* CharacterDevelopment: Arguably, most inner demons represent the negative emotions of their host. After Olivia defeats them, the host will be able to handle these emotions much better in real life.
* CollisionDamage: Inverted when Olivia attacks some of the gnarlequins with her Indigo Shooting Star.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The first thing John does when he wakes up in the Soul World is kill a jester in one punch, and then kill an additional six in a flurry of [[ImprobableWeaponUser basketball]] moves. This is before Olivia even hurt any of them.
* DeflectorShields: One of the many spells Olivia possesses.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The real world is shown in black and white, the Soul World is shown in full-color.
* EverybodyHatesMathematics: Or atleast John does. It's his worst class because he loses his concentration [[ImagineSpot thinking about basketball.]]
* {{Flight}}: Another one of the many magical spells Olivia possesses.
* FriendlessBackground: Olivia literally has zero friends, and doesn't want any.
* HowWeGotHere: Chapter 2 starts with a tired Olivia with an injured arm. In a [[{{Flashback}} flashback]], we get to see what happened.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Chapters are called "Movements", like of a piece of classical music (First Movement, Second Movement, etc.)
* IdiotHero: John, although he isn't the main protagonist.
* IKnowMaddenKombat: John's first instinct of a weapon to summon is a powerful basketball. He immediately kills six enemies in quick succession using it.
* InformedLoner: Inverted with John, although not so much to actually make him a loner. [[http://soulsymphonycomic.com/comics/not-good-enough/ Even though Charlie tells him he has a lot of friends and plenty of girls who'd want to date him]], whenever we see him, he usually hangs out with either Charlie or Olivia, or just spends time by himself. Averted with Olivia, who really was lonely at the beginning of the story, although she is starting to make friends.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Enemies in Charlie's Soul World literally fight by swinging microphones and electric guitars around.
* InvisibleToNormals: The only one who can see Carl in the normal world is Olivia.
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: It's how Olivia chooses to help kids with their psychological and emotional problems, by going into their "Soul Worlds."
* LuminescentBlush: Olivia seems to be getting these a lot as the comic progresses.
* MagicMusic: Playing instruments in the Soul World results in casting spells. Olivia gains flight and barrier abilities by playing scales and trills on her clarinet respectively.
* MentorMascot: Carl is this to Olivia. Despite his personality, he appears to be very knowledgeable on how the magic of Soul Worlds work, but doesn't tend to explain things until it's almost too late.
* MonsterOfTheWeek / MysteryOfTheWeek: Each chapter involves Olivia helping a different client with their problem by defeating a different monster each time.
* MusicalAssassin: Olivia, see above.
** John too, maybe even better than Olivia.
* RefusalOfTheCall: She tried to ignore it, [[YouCantFightFate but eventually]], she just accepted it.
* ShoutOut: Eric has [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland several]] [[{{Kirby}} familiar]] [[FinalFantasy plushies]] in his room, and a [[Franchise/MetalGear poster with a certain logo on it]]. He also wears a [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda shirt with a Triforce on it]] from time to time.
** And then [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] can be seen in Eric's memory cave.
** John pulls a [[BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden "CHAOOOOOOOOOOOOOS DUUUUUUUUUUNK"]] in the 100 flash special.
* SnarkyNonHumanSidekick: Carl to Olivia. Most of their conversations boil down to who can be the snarkiest.
* SplashOfColor: See DeliberatelyMonochrome above.
* TeenGenius: Olivia is a musical prodigy. Eric counts too, as he can play various instruments successfully.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Because she helped out Eric in the real world, this literally protected Olivia from harm while she was in his Soul World.
* ThePowerOfRock: The monster of Charlie's Soul World summons lightning bolts by strumming power chords.
* TriangleRelations: Questionably Type 3 with Olivia(a), John, and Eric.
