1.3. The Client acknowledges and agrees that vocal coaching & mentorship is a comprehensive process that may explore different areas of the Client's life, including mindset, health, and daily habits to ensure the best results for vocal transformation. Still, it is ultimately the Client’s decision to incorporate coaching into each aspect of life.

1.4. The Client is solely responsible for implementing the techniques discovered through coaching.
