Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Perhaps the most common reaction to the film is ''"Gee, who knew that marching bands were the most badass thing ever?"''


Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: Devon knows full well that he's the most talented drummer at A&T, and assumes that [[BunnyEarsLawyer his talent will enable him to get away with as much jackassery as he wants]]. He's right about the first part, but painfully wrong about the second. While being ThePrimaDonna might fly if he were a professional musician playing in a rock band or a jazz band, those same rules don't apply in a university marching band, where cooperation and teamwork matter more than anything else.

* ChallengingTheChief: Devon attempts to do this when he wins a contest with Sean over who can play the longest while making eye contact. Dr. Lee instead calls him out for being a JerkAss.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** Perhaps more importantly, there is no such magical computer program that transcribes your playing onto paper. At least, not one that works.

* 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.
