TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)--There are some students here in the Valley who were nominated for this year's Grammy Awards.

About 34 graduates of The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences can call themselves Grammy-nominated musicians!

The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences is a technical music school in Tempe and it's better known as CRAS.

This year, the students worked on 36 Grammy Award-nominated albums and songs across 33 categories. This isn't the first time the students and the school have been recognized at the Grammys.

In 2017, CRAS students worked on 11 award-winning nominations.

"Every year this year there are over 30 different nominated titles of songs and or albums that our graduates have worked on in terms of engineering and recording mixing assisting," says Robert Brock, the school's director.

"We're talking about artists from such as Pink, 21 Pilots, Miguel. It's like this every year that our graduates have won."

Each year, CRAS graduates make a name for themselves by working on this music. The schools have been training people in the music industry for more than 30 years.

Many of the students win Grammy Awards for "Best Engineered Albums" that, of course, helps them get their foot in the door to some pretty cool jobs in the industry.

CRAS has two locations in Tempe and Gilbert. For more information on the school, click here

This piece needs to be proofread and corrected. The name of the school, for example is spelled out twice in the second sentence (but capitalized only once). Every paragraph has errors.
