The Nickelodeon original series School Of Rock first premiered in March 2016, and fans cannot believe how fast time has flown by. The show — based off the 2003 movie of the same name — follows a group of students who start a rock band with their substitute teacher Dewey Finn. Other than Breanna, the series also starred Breanna Yde, Aidan Miner, Lance Lim, Ricardo Hurtado, Jade Pettyjohn, Tony Cavalero and Jama Williamson.
“I definitely think that what drew me to the project was music and I love it was a group of kids who learns how to express themselves through music,” Jade told Starry Mag in 2016 about joining the series. “They get together and form a band. Hopefully, it inspires some kids to pick up an instrument, play some music and listen to music they haven’t heard before.”
The actress continued, “I think one of the really fun moments was in the first episode where we got to play as a band for the first time. We used classical instruments and then turned it into our own rock band version. That was really fun because we got to turn it into something amazing. It was great because we all play instruments in real life. So, getting that flavor was a spark of something. That was a really great moment on set.”
Jade also reflected on her experience filming the show, and said, “It was amazing for me as well because I got to play music with other kids my age who were musicians. I have met some of my best friends that way, who are some of my castmates. It’s been a pretty epic experience overall.”
After School of Rock came to an end, Breanna kicked off a solo music career. She chatted with HollywoodLife in October 2020 about whether to not the Nickelodeon series has had an impact on her music.
“It was a part of my life, and I lived through it. So you know, I think [the show], subconsciously, definitely probably had an impact on some things somewhere,” she gushed at the time. “It was definitely beyond School of Rock and it was beyond trying to stick to [the punk look], for some reason. It was just my own fascination with it.”
