Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Children & Youth, Education, Music, Primary & Elementary Schools, Youth Development Programs

Mission:

Just Lovin’ Music Studios, Inc.’ mission is to inspire, motivate and energize through music education.  We firmly believe that schools without music education are at risk of bringing up a generation of children without emotional, spiritual and cultural development, which music provides. Our program is designed to bring together students from different social, economic, racial and ethnic backgrounds. Our program provides a constructive, positive alternative for potentially at-risk youth, instead of violence, drugs and on-street activities. 

Programs:

JLMS is making it possible for private, public and charter schools to bring music programs, particularly instrumental instruction, back into the school curriculum.  Our 4 objectives are:  Improve academic performance, restoration of music in schools, social improvement and cultural awareness. We customize the programs to fit the school's curriculum or afterschool programs. Our instrumental programs include teachers, instruments, books, supplies, school liaisons and performance recitals. Our curriculum includes: Instrument technique, note reading, sight reading, music theory, ear training, music appreciation, music history, pillars of poise, and performance skills.

I have attended several recitals of Just Lovin Music Studios. The students shine with talent. Their musical gift is enhanced by the instructions received at Just Lovin Music Studios. The founder herself is an accomplished and dedicated pianist so any student who passes through those doors have been and or will be in the presence of one of the best.

JLMS is a wonderful organization which contributes to the growth and development of young people (and adults also) from all cultures and backgrounds. I've had the opportunity to attend at least three separate functions which featured musical presentations from children playing a variety of instruments and they were superb. The staff consists of several well-known musicians whose music we hear on the radio today, or who are well known in the music industry.

I have had the pleasure of being an audience member at several events, where the students put on an inspiring concert. It is wonderful to witness the growth and talent of these young and up and coming musicians! The staff is very attentive and patient with the students.

My nephew has been a student at JLMS for the past 3 years. He's always had an interest in music and often participates in school plays. I have seen him flourish in both music and overall expression and begin to master two instruments. Individuals like Ms. Love provide a service that is necessary for our children to grow into well-rounded productive citizens within our communities. Bravo JLMS!!

Michelle Love has been a catalyst for inspiration in so many areas mainly music. Many people have experienced her genious working with all who have a love of music. One of the main inspiration in my life has been to use music as a means of focusing on the necessary. Just Lovin' Music fits the shoes we all can benefit from. Schools should return to and encourage students in the Arts as part of their curriculum. The students character is enhanced when positive reinforcement is encouraged and helps to open doors to empowerment for them. Whether believed or not, everyone benefits from music in the arts and the more positive the better.

I have attended the Just Lovin Music's recitals to see my Son Jace perform. I have been thoroughly please and enjoyed every one I had the opportunity to see. This program is great for our young boys and girls because most of them are learning to play two musical instruments, which promotes a strong work ethic and will help make them more well rounded as they mature in life. Also they are learning to overcome "stage fright" and express themselves in ways my generation didn't have. Keep up the good work, you are doing a great job!

I have a 6 year old grandson currently taking piano lessons at JLMS. His progess is excellent. He reads music notes, and has been in 3 recitals, playing complex pieces of music. I commend Machelle Love and her staff for the fine work they are doing. Willie Fann Executive Director Recycling Black Dollars Website: www.rbdmedia.net

I believe that a lot of what's happening to young people today is that much of their potential goes untapped, unrecognized and unchallenged due to many things that’s lacking and not available as they began their formal educational journey. Due to high cost and budget constraints, exposure to and /or participation in an art form is one of those areas of lack that provide students the ability to receive personal guidance and assistance, as their natural gifts and abilities are recognized, discovered and encouraged. Thus resulting, in a deep sense of pride and self-incentive for personal accomplishment. As I have attended JLMS recitals and other musical presentations it’s noticeable that these students receive that personal care and encouragement that enables them to function with a high sense of confidence and awareness of who they are and the steps they must take to accomplish their individual goals and ambitions. Whether that’s in one of the art forms such as music, or other career professionals, as they become responsible, productive men and women in our society. Kudos, to JLMS for the dedication and commitment of their director and teaching staff and their continued efforts of trying to provide an affordable professional program to meet this most worthy need. I humbly ask your endorsement of JLMS by bringing awareness and assistance as they endeavor to serve those that are disadvantage and low income during these times of great economic hardship.

I have attended and enjoyed the student recitals and always come away impressed with the poise and performances of the different age group performers. It's easy to see that the students have transformed their learning into high energy, happiness and skill! Just watching their faces and body language are very touching and inspiring. I know Michelle Love personally and have also had the privilege to see her perform musically - a fantastic and awesome experience! Her love for her students and drive to positively impact young lives through music is phenomenal. She knows no limits on working long and tedious hours. The dedication, perseverance and dedication of Just Lovin Music Studios in these very difficult financial times is incredible and the staff should be lauded. The children need this bright beacon of light in their lives! Keep up the great work! If I had children, they would be learning from Just Lovin Music and loving it!
