School of Rock is an American comedy television show that aired from 2016 to 2018 on Nickelodeon. The show is based on the 2003 movie of the same name and revolves around a group of students who form a rock band with their substitute teacher. The show follows the story of a down-on-his-luck musician named Dewey Finn, played by Tony Cavalero, who takes on a substitute teaching job at a prestigious prep school to make ends meet. However, instead of teaching his students, he ends up forming a rock band with them, hoping to win the upcoming Battle of the Bands competition and fulfill his dream of becoming a rock star.

The main cast of the show includes Breanna Yde as Tomika, Ricardo Hurtado as Freddy, Jade Pettyjohn as Summer, Lance Lim as Zack, Aidan Miner as Lawrence and Tony Cavalero as Dewey Finn. Each of these characters brings their unique personality and talents to the band, making them a dynamic group of performers.

Tomika is a reserved and shy student who possesses a powerful singing voice, but lacks confidence. Freddy is a self-professed "cool guy" who plays the electric guitar and is always eager to show off his skills. Summer is a straight-A student who plays the bass guitar, but struggles with finding her own identity outside of her academic achievements. Zack is a rebellious student who plays the electric guitar and often clashes with Dewey over creative differences. Lawrence is a quiet and nerdy student who plays the keyboard and provides a comedic element to the group. Finally, Dewey is the band's eccentric leader, who pushes the students to reach their full potential and often gets them into trouble.

Throughout the show, the band faces various challenges, including personal conflicts and obstacles related to their school and family lives. However, they always come together to support each other and overcome these challenges, strengthening their friendships and musical abilities in the process.
