Country music psychology certainly provides me great company and relaxing vibes after completing a comparatively academic related and informative program of professor Chris'. Knowing reviews take a LONG time to show so I decided to leave it earlier this time. Through examples and discussion, this class also built me more insight toward every piece of country music (so familiar yet some more to learn). Many times, I feel as if I am listening to short stories. Before climbing another mountain, this class serves light gentle breeze to energize us for the next achievement.

Chris' courses is making me grow inside and in myself. They are thought provoking and educational. Chris is a good teacher and cares about his students. I have in this course done 31 % so far, and I have learned about new singers and new songs. I have gone back to my childhood and remembered the songs I used to sing and listen to. It's been a good journey so far. I also get a grip on health issues in a good way. If you really want to have fun, think about life and grow at the same time, I highly recommend Chris' courses.

I am only part way through this course but can already say it is fantastic. Not just the music clips but also the comments and chat etc. A fun course that's also educational. Art work is good too!

one of the most amazing classes i have attended online ever, bless you, Mr Sivewright for, on top of it all, making this class available for everyone to attend. your insight is invaluable and has expanded my understanding of sound elements, be they phonological or musical, in more than just country music. too few are those words which could express my gratitude in full. i thank you in a sincerest and warmest manner and may you remain as resplendent as ever.
