Just Lovin Music Studios
February 22, 2010

My experience with JLMS was on a consulting level where I had an opportunity to work with Michelle and her staff. Her team appeared very organized and committed to the vision and the work required to provide services to her students. Just Lovin’ Music Studios was organized in a manner consistent with other non-profit organizations and were in compliance in all areas observed. I also had the pleasure of attending some of their performances and was just overwhelmed to see how wonderfully the children performed their musical pieces and the support of their family and friends who attended the events. I am hopeful that they will be around for a long time to continue to be of service to the community.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The committment of the staff and the students.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

CEO, Accountant, Receptionist, Board Member.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Fully staff its operations and be of greater service to the community, implement an expansion plan that includes a operations in other regions and offer support to more students who lack the funds to participate in the program.

Ways to make it better...

I participated in statistical evaluations and / or reviewed more statical reports that actually measured the performances and outcomes.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Consisent funding to support the work.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This organization was birthed as a result of a vision to provide musical programs to students & the committment of the staff and volunteers. It is well ran and very needed in the community. The programs serves as a deterrent for at risk and other youth.
