I hope what you take away from this master class is a few tidbits of advice on how to stand on stage, how to say thank you to an audience, how to tend to business. Because this is a business. It's not just fun and games. It is a business. And how to conduct yourself. How to present yourself. How to pick out a song. Are you a singer? Are you a songwriter? Are you both? I hope that you've learned something and I hope it's helped. I hope you've been entertained. And I hope I see you down the road somewhere. Maybe up on stage with me. I'd love to share the stage with you. But whatever field that you choose to take in the country music business, or the music business in general, best of luck to you. Godspeed. And thank you so much for your time.

I fell in love Reba! Truly a great class! Your a great Teacher! On a scale of 1-10 I give this this class a 12!

I love this class!!! It's like sitting down and having a great talk with someone you admire and respect. And I sure do!!

I took this for fun. I'm a fan of Reba forever so I thought I would take the class! It's easy to see why she's been so successful. The students got some great advice from an experienced artist. I hope they listened! Great class!!

Great Class! Lots of stories about the music business. I wanted more. Thanks Reba!

Thank YOU for sharing all this incredible information and valuable insights.

Reba was quite the surprise to the upside. I like the time she spent showing us how to make the sausage. The time in studio was a nice addition as was the lessons she had for the four up-and-coming singers. Looking audiences in the eye and breath control as well as emotional investment in songs was helpful. Her singing a very personal song to an empty house in the Opry was also very touching. Her explanation of country music and its roots and direction was disappointing. She has been such a staple in this genre but she was being too diplomatic and did not name names. I guess the upcoming Ken Burns documentary on country music this September 2019 will be the primer on this. The addition of the duet bonus was a nice touch but the versions of the song with Kelly and Linda were so much more powerful. I'm sure the singer she used does this every night and the big named partners only come out for the awards show. I have seen Reba live and she is always a delight. This class was a pleasant surprise. Nice job.

I personally have no desire to be a singer, however, I did enjoy learning what it takes to become a great performer.

Reba is such a sincere, wonderful person. Her insights and lessons are universal, relevant to so much in life, not just the music business. Thank you, Reba, for all your contributions!

OK WOW just like I said before. Only now I would like to say a few things to show my appreciation for not just this class but for your lifetime of devotion to music and to your fans. I am one of those ladies who started hearing you and couldn't get enough. I took the class so that I could learn some warm-up techniques but I got so much more. I am not actually looking to "sing for my supper" so to speak because I am happy just to sing in virtual worlds and do shows for charities. I'm a cancer survivor, left with "monkey brains" and brittle bones but I don't let that stop me from singing. In 2010 before the cancer, I was doing 3 shows a day , 6 days a week... Bloodied up my vocal cords when attempting to do the "Rolling in the Deep" tune by Adele before properly warming up. I was shut down for over 9 months... trying to heal.... When I did come back, within 6 months of that I was diagnosed with breast cancer. But... (with me there's always a but) now I am better and just doing about 3 shows a month for the fun of it. I sing in a few different virtual worlds , make a tiny bit of change and just enjoy my times to shine. Reba, thank you for all of your help. May God truly continue to Bless you and yours. Keep on being beautiful....... Amanda

Thanks so much Reba. I learnt to believe in myself. I don't have to be the best singer but rather give the performance my best. Thanks for all your wisdom, things that I knew but you put it together in such a wonderful way. I didn't know your music before this and I think you are an amazing singier with heart. Thanks again and may you always be blessed.

Thank you, Reba, for the lessons in music and in life. You are a wonderful human being. I do love your instruction style. God bless you always.

I have nothing t do with the music business, nor do I care a great deal for country music. I have enjoyed Rebas music and other activities, and thought I'd give her lesson a shot. I found it a very positive, enjoyable, honest discussion on how to conduct yourself in life in general. I enjoyed her talks and would recommend it to my friends, Thank you.
