Based on the 2003 hit film, School of Rock follows Dewey Finn, a failed wannabe rock star who is down on his luck. He decides to make some cash by posing as his friend teaching at a prestigious prep school. Realizing the talent among the students, Dewey decides to mold them into a rock band and enter an upcoming Battle of the Bands competition. Along the way, Dewey finds self-worth, a proper job, and, most importantly, he teaches the children and their parents the beauty of rock and roll.
