  • Overview
  • Details
At Paul Green's Philadelphia music school for kids, the "three R's" are rhythm and rock 'n' roll, as the energetic ex-rocker teaches kids the essentials of playing, singing and performing rock music. This documentary captures him working with his students, including a talented 12-year-old guitarist who just might be Jimi Hendrix's reincarnation. Green's top band is invited to perform at Zappanale, Germany's annual Frank Zappa cover-band festival.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the movie's teacher, Paul Green, and some of his teenaged students use frequent curse words (including various forms of "f--k"). While most of the students and their parents here commend Green's approach, one former student notes that the criticisms and jokes at his expense are harsh. One young student suffers from a bone disorder, appearing on stage post-surgery, playing his guitar while seated.
