Recordings/Podcast

"Everything you create is a reflection of who you are AND who you will become."

Everything in this archive was created by CMAS students. Everything. For every single piece, be it live or in studio, there was a student or students composing it, students preparing/practicing the performance, students selecting and setting up all the gear, students running every single cable, in some cases even designing the room and/or stage setup, students running the recording sessions and live events sound, students mixing, hopefully students writing liner notes, and so on. It’s a lot to do at any age, let alone as teenagers. A lot of time, a lot of effort, a lot of care. Continually being added to, this archive is a reflection of the students over the years and their work and their Creative processes. This archive is a moment in time. And it’s only a small sample of what goes on in CMAS. It’s an honor to be part of it all.

About The Program

The nationally recognized Arcadia High School CMAS (Creative Musical Arts and Sciences) program, Phoenix, Arizona, is considered by many Music Education and Industry experts to be the model for Creativity based music programs. Students gain significant, real world, industry training while learning to develop and refine their own Creative process. Intended as a completely open creative platform, with no musical restrictions of any kind, students need no experience to be part of the program, and earn Fine Arts, Career and Technical Education, and even college credit, for their work. Each year CMAS presents dozens of original student performances, releases multiple albums, produces community events, and hosts numerous university Music Education student interns and student teachers. The program was created and is facilitated by Musician/Producer, and three-time GRAMMY® Foundation Music Educator of the Year nominee (2015 Top 10 Finalist), Richard Maxwell.
