"It is the ultimate dream of many music writers to someday write an opus that becomes lauded, conducted and renown throughout the world. In an effort to free up his time to compose such a piece of work, Glenn Holland takes up a position in a high school to teach music. After years of showing his students how to perform at their best, both within and without the music classroom, he finds that the accumulated end result of his teaching efforts is his true magnum opus.
