"There is a lot more to music than notes on a page... Playing music is suppose to be fun. It's about heart. It's about feelings and moving people and something in beautiful in being alive. It is not about notes on a page. I could teach you notes on a page. I can't teach you that other stuff." -- Mr. Holland
"You already know it. It's already in your head and your fingers and your heart. You just don't trust yourself to know that." -- Mr. Holland
Note 1: This collection of clips begins with the first day of class and then on to subsequent student-teacher interactions throughout a semester.
Note 2: These clips are edited together in such a way to highlight questions about pedagogy, but not spoil the film, if you have not seen it. I'd strongly encourage you to watch the full film. There is much more in the film.
