Summary
The imagination of nine-year-old Bart Collins comes to life in this fantasy film filled with surreal landscapes and tongue-twisting rhymes. When he is lulled to sleep by the monotony of his piano lessons, he dreams of a castle ruled by his eccentric piano teacher, Dr. Terwilliker. Dr. T wants to prove that his method of teaching piano is the best method in the world. After he banishes all other musical instruments to the dungeon, he lures 500 boys to perform on the biggest grand piano ever built
