* HeelRealization: Sean realizes that there's ultimately no point in antagonizing Devon. Dr. Lee eventually calls him on his spiteful behavior, implying that he's intimidated by Devon instead of trying to help him. This leads to Sean taking a more of a relaxed mentor role toward Devon, allowing the latter to see the value of learning music.

* ArtisticLicenseMusic: The printed music that comes out of a snare drum solo in the middle of the movie has sharps and flats, despite the fact that a snare drum has only one note (roughly, "bang"). Besides the "bang," (notated with a note) there are also flams (where both hands hit the drum at the same speed with one slightly higher than the other; notated with one grace note to another note), double strokes (where two notes are played in one hand throughout the duration of the beat specified; notated with a slash through the note's stem), rim shots (where the shoulder of the stick hits the rim at the same time as the tip of the stick hitting the head; notated with an x on the line where notes are), and many other notations which do not use sharps or flats.
