Chanteurs was one of the greatest in the country under his guidance. Nothing but respect for this man.

Mr. Maxson was the greatest Choir director ever, and we're going to miss him so much now that he's retiring. We'll always love you! ): I feel bad that new choir kids won't ever get to experience his mood swings. (: He's harsh sometimes but only because he cares. Chanteurs will never be the same without you Mr. Maxson!

This teacher is a very complicated man. He went through a lot in his early life, which explains his consistent bitterness and anger. But I believe he purposely yells at us in order to help us. And it really works. Althought 09 isn't the best year for Chanteurs, we still progressed drastically, and we're only getting better. I thank this man for all the inspiration he has given me. He may not totally like me, but he has changed my life for the better.

Mr. Maxson is such a cedicaed and experienced choral director, and he's also fun to be around. He jokes a lot, and unless you syper annoying, he would never get too mad at you. Mr. Maxson is an awesome teacher.

he's ok....he jokes around, but you never know when he's happy or mad....like one day, he could be laughing because you sang the wrong note, and the next day, he could be extremely mad and cuss at you.....tips: learn to cite read....and take your music home with you every night to get a head start...

Mr. Maxson is probably the most dedicated and the most caring teacher on campus. He not only sacrifices his own life to help out the choirs, but he also sacrifices his own luxuries for his students. Thanks Mr. Maxson. =)

Mr Maxson is the best director ever. I have never met anyone as passionate about music as he is. People need to understand that he doesn't mean it when he says mean things. He truly cares about the group and has given his all

He helps if you ask but then again, it's scary to ask him anything. You never know when he might blow up. However :) he's still cool, I guess.

I'm a Chanteur. Maxson is grumpy but he KNOWS it. He's an expert at music and is the reason Chanteurs is one of the top show choirs. Great teacher overall.
