  • P50,000 per week (5 days) = P12,500 discount (it’s like getting one free day). Sessions contiguous throughout one week (all 5 days within one week means a day off can be called midweek, in fact this is the recommended strategy, days 1 & 2 for basic parts, off-day to review, unwind/relax, then resume with ferocity and purpose on days 3, 4, 5). We can discount this much for a week due to reduced amount of setup and teardown of recording equipment.
