A promising young drummer enrolls at a cut-throat music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student's potential.
J.K. Simmons has won 47 awards for his role as Fletcher.
Now are you a rusher, or are you a dragger or are you gonna be ON MY FUCKING TIME?
Andrew: I'll be on your time.
When the Studio Band takes a break before Andrew (the "Squeaker") plays Whiplash for the first time he is shown in the hall writing notation on the Whiplash manuscript in pen. Presumably this is an original copy that he would not have had time to make his own copy/ copies for making notes- and an accomplished musician would not use pen for marking timings on music. Musicians only pencil so manuscripts can be cleaned (marks erased) and reused. Immediately in the next scene when Andrew stands and starts walking with Fletcher, Andrew is clearly carrying a pencil.
