Jack Black is known for being both a comedic actor as well as a musician. He combined these two disciplines in the film ‘School of Rock’. The film as the title would suggest focuses on music within a school.
However, this is no ordinary school. It’s a very tightly run private school where the parents pay $10k a term for them to be educated. They are not best pleased then when they find out that the substitute teacher Ned Schneebly is in fact Dewey Finn a washed-up rock lead guitarist looking to pay his rent money by impersonating his roommate. Dewey is desperate. The Battle of the Bands looms and a recording contract is the prize up for grabs. Dewey is thrown out of his band and is looking for some new bandmates that will step up for him. In a move that seems pretty much doomed to failure from the beginning he chooses to recruit the children to be able to fulfil his dream of creating a band. As luck would have it the children are extremely talented especially guitarist Zach and keyboardist Lawrence. Katie on bass and Freddy on the Drums provide the rhythm section. While the kids all go to an excellent school where academic achievement is really focused on and are incredibly talented they are extremely gullible and the believe Dewey when he tells them that the next quarters competition is a project called “Rock band”.
Luckily Dewey has all the instruments required to form a band but If you are looking for guitar shops Gloucestershire area to purchase your own guitar and rock out like the students in the film then it is worth taking a look at https://www.guitarsmiths.co.uk/. In a highly illegal move Dewey smuggles the children out to a project “rehearsal” which is in fact a pre-audition of Battle of the Bands. Despite the fact that Dewey drives an exhaust spewing van which is covered in the names of metal bands and all the other bands are made up of adults the kids still don’t twig what’s going on. The running order is over stacked already so the band don’t get in. However, the quick-thinking Summer tells Dewey to tell the organisers that the kids are terminally ill, and this is their dream. It works despite the kids cheering wildly when they’re told it’s a go (they immediately start coughing again and in Freddie’s case he throws himself to the floor).
Ned’s unpleasant girlfriend calls the police after a payment ends up at the apartment and Dewey is busted at the parent’s evening. He flees, and the police and school seem to drop the case. The kids still want to do the gig and go and pick him up. He apologises but they don’t care. The parents find out and storm the Battle of the Bands to see their children rock out the show. It’s a great film.
