This week we have a bunch of kids living their own little rock 'n roll fantasy. They can't be in a high school musical because they're still in grade school, and they'd rock around the clock except that their bed time is 8:30. Time for a little "kid rock" on this week's episode of, "The Little Heroes."

"School of Rock" made a big splash when it came out back in 2003 and seven years later, it continues to be one of the top favorite film rentals for both kids and adults.
The delightful musical comedy, starring the irreverent Jack Black, is testament to the transformative powers of rock ‘n’ roll. It served as a catalyst for the development of a new type of music program aimed at getting kids excited about playing instruments and singing together in rock bands. Such programs quickly began sprouting up around the country.
Here in Woodinville, there’s Spotlight Studios, a music facility with its own school of rock or "jam academy."
