Here’s how a Private Sessions Set Works:
You are sent a folder of excerpts & an audio lecture.
You listen to the lecture & then select the excerpt you want, record and send it to Pat. He gives you guidance on your performance.
Then, you RECORD IT AGAIN & send it to him. Again, Pat sends you guidance.
You and Pat do this exchange with 5 different excerpts.
10 total recordings — at your own pace.
