    10 Lessons "School Of Rock" Taught Me About The Power Of Music

    With a new TV show based on the movie in the works, let's remember all the best lessons from School of Rock.

    1. Music isn't a contest.

    2. There are no real rules when it comes to making and loving music...

    3. ...but that doesn't mean you can't learn from some of history's greats.

    4. Music brings people together.

    5. Don't judge a fan at face value.

    Bey stans, EDM kids, punk rockers: There's no one way to dress, speak, or live. Principal Mullins freaking out to Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen" proves that there's a crazy music fan in everyone, regardless of how they look!

    6. Music is cathartic.

    7. It's not always easy being a girl in music.

    8. Everyone's taste is different, so don't get upset when people just don't ~get~ you.

    So maybe someone thinks you're a weirdo for being a Phish freak. Or, you get side-eyed when you say you can't stand Ariana Grande. Whatever your taste in music is, it's OK to be different and to respect everyone else for being different too.

    9. Talent transcends age.

    10. Above all: There's a place in music for everyone.

    Unless, of course, it turns out to be the best idea ever.
