The Gospel Music Association is proud to introduce a brand new way to experience IMMERSE

The MasterClass Sessions

The purpose of The MasterClass Sessions is to provide specialized education and training in an intimate learning environment with top professionals you wouldn’t have access to anywhere else!

Add on The MasterClass Sessions in the track of your choice (Artist, Songwriter) and each afternoon you will be fully immersed (see what we did there?!) in pro panels, one-on-one feedback and networking opportunities!

What sets MasterClass Sessions apart from the regular sessions?


MasterClass Students receive unprecedented access to our industry's top pros and the opportunity to showcase their artistry to them in person. Bring your original songs to the MasterClass Session & receive one-on-one feedback as well as group reviews! Your MasterClass Session Add-On also includes daily access to our VIP Networking Lunch.


IMMERSE MasterClasses are limited to 20 individuals per track session, so you are able to have a more personal experience, get more questions answered and experience more hands on training.


The MasterClass Session Add-On not only gives you access to a more personal learning environment, but also various performance opportunities throughout the conference. MasterClass Students will be considered for our popular Open Mic Nights and will be eligible to be chosen to perform during our Wednesday Evening Showcase. After Immerse, a handful of MasterClass students will also be invited to the 50th Annual GMA Dove Awards where they will present at the Industry-Only Pre-Telecast and have their picture taken on the Red Carpet! Finally, we offer our MasterClass students 10 Free Conference Audio Sessions of their choosing so you can get a refresher from your favorite sessions over and over again!
