*** Lesson Details ***
Karen's teaching style is very patient, nurturing, encouraging, and fun-loving. Karen is a teacher who sets loving but firm boundaries and guidelines. She implements structure and organization, but is not overly strict and harsh. She believes in encouraging, loving, and imparting knowledge with her students so that they will maximize their potentiality and their inner musical stars will shine.
Karen teaches piano, voice, guitar, and music theory for beginning through intermediate (for voice she teaches beginning through advanced). The curriculum that Karen uses is varied according to the student's personality and learning level. She uses her vast knowledge and information from her education and past experiences, and also Alfred Essentials of Music Theory, Alfred's Instructional books, Hal Leonard Pro-vocal Series, Faber Piano Adventures for all levels, and other resources. She also uses an assignment lesson plan book so that each student will know her clear objectives, what is expected of them and so that communication is established with the student's parents if the student is under 18. Additionally, Karen uses incentives, a point system, and rewards for self-discipline, consistent practicing, musical accomplishment and growth, and a good attitude.
Karen's students learn and perform remarkably well because of her very loving, organized, and comprehensive teaching style. They progress in amazing ways on a weekly and monthly basis. They look forward to coming to their lessons because they are treated with such respect and care. They know that Karen has such a passion and love for music, which is so contagious and is passed on to them. Therefore, these music lessons are enjoyable and enriching for the teacher and student alike.

*** I have a current Fingerprint Clearance Card

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitar, Kimball piano, CD and cassette players, extensive music literature, Demo and Karaoke CD's.

*** Specialties ***
I have been classically trained as a voice major at college level. However, I have had so much musical experience (singing, and playing guitar and piano) in varied genres including rock and roll, Broadway and theatrical music, country western, Christian contemporary, folk songs, and children's music. I am very familiar with all kinds of music.

This was my first time modeling in a show, and my overall experience was great. Tamika provided great feedback regarding walking, using modeling stance, posing, and how to have fun and interact with the audience. She chose awesome people to walk for her in the show, and we all got along really well. Tamika communicated professionally and respectfully to her models. She also provided all of the clothing for the show which was great because I did not have to come out of pocket to get additional clothing. I would suggest that she get an assistant to help her on the day of the show.

About Arlene
Hi! I'm Arlene Banks! I'm 36 years young, married to a wonderful God fearing man, and the mother to an amazing and very smart 11 year old prince! I absolutely love my family, my life and what I do! I would love to teach you all about how I create beauty! I have been into beauty since the tender age of 13! I started working out of my parent's kitchen doing hair and makeup at that age! It all came natural just by watching my mom do her hair and makeup all the time! So I followed in her footsteps and turned it into a business! At 13 I created my own flyers, price list, and schedule! By the time I graduated as a senior from high school I had accumulated lots of clients because my talent sold itself and I had accrued 1000 hours in Cosmetology because it was offered in HS! I started working in a salon at 16 under an apprenticeship as a shampoo
tech and learning the ins and outs of a salon and booth rental, after a few years of that I got very good at my craft and that's when the big bucks started to roll in and I got really serious about my growing business! I went to cosmetology school after graduating high school and finished getting my 500 hours I needed to obtain my license, well, I took the exam and passed the 1st time!! I was so happy!! Simply because I loved making others feel even more beautiful than what they already are! With my skills and professional talent I've won 1st place in my very 1st hair show and $1000(Milky Way Hair Show), I've been featured in 3 beauty magazines with 2 models that made the cover, I opened a small salon, working alone, which nearly brought in 6 figures in a year from my timely private appointments and expertise, and I've also done work for a movie on set! I absolutely love what I do and how my talent speaks for itself! I'm excited to teach you what I know that can help you enhance your beauty day to day!! Well what are you waiting for? Time is of the essence...class will begin shortly, don't be late! See you soon! Let's get started!

I really enjoyed Arlene's makeup lessons! I learned so much about makeup and I'm excited to book her again to learn more. I'm excited to know how to do the basics of makeup. I feel more comfortable applying my own makeup since Arlene showed me her quick tricks. I feel beautiful and confident! My makeup looks amazing! Can't wait until the next lesson to learn eyeshadow! Thanks Arlene! You're the best and so much fun!
