After being kicked out of his rock band, guitarist Dewey Finn faces a mountain of debts and depression. He shares an apartment with an old band member, Ned Schneebly, who is now a substitute teacher. Dewey accepts a job as a substitute teacher at a snobbish private elementary school where his attitude and hijinx have a powerful result on his students. He learns they are talented young musicians, and he decides to form a rock band with them to win the $10,000 prize money in a local band contest. Once Dewey wins a competition called "Battle of the Bands", the prize money would solve his financial problems and put him back in the rock music spotlight. - Steve Shedloski

After being fired from his own rock band, guitar player Dewey Finn needs to raise some money to pay for his rent and his bills. When his best friend and school teacher Ned Schneebly is called to a temporary work in an expensive private school, Dewey pretends to be Ned and accepts the job. He finds talented young musicians in his class, and he decides to form a rock band with the students. However, he must do this in secret so that the school's principle and the students' parents know nothing about his plan. Once Dewey wins a competition called "Battle of the Bands", he can raise the $10,000 prize money and be recognized in the rock music business. - Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
