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.

JLMS has proven to be a source of learning I will never forget, I am a senior well over my sixties and I also am a beginning student. How exciting it is to study with my teacher ,Jacquelyn. She is patient and displays an unmatched professional level that is so easy to study under. KUDOS to the entire JLMS team.

I enjoy the personal touch that I feel comes from the JLMS staff. My teacher is wonderful and I sometimes feel that she has more faith in me, than I myself. However, since I am a young adult and have self-elected to take piano classes, it is ultimately up to me to dedicate myself and practice, practice, practice.. The school/studio is amazing!

My two daughters take music lessons at JLMS. They enjoy the lessons and the teaching staff. I have also experienced JLMS inside the schools as a classroom teacher. (Review submitted by GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of the reviewer).

Michelle Love and her incredible staff are wonderful with the children. She and her staff are excellent in their field and very dedicated to the children. Every recital they try to have everyone donate money so children that are unable to afford music lessons can possibly take lessons for free if funds are available. She has been doing this for over ten years. Michelle Love has a heart of gold and is always trying to help the children in her community learn how to play any musical instrucment they choose if funds are available.

It is a privilege to write about a person who has demonstrated her ability to play the piano to that of loving and caringly sharing her talent with others. Mrs. Love ably shares her love for music with adults as well as with children. Her students respect her and respond to her musical instructions by practice and working hard to achieve the perfection that Mrs. Love instills in all her pupils. She is a great motivator and teacher.

I've attended many concerts. Watching the kids perform and play their instruments with enthusiasm and enjoying it. The applause from the audience and how proud the look on each of the parents' faces made for a great kodak moment.

Just Loving Music is a wonderful experience for the music student and his/her family. The students learn piano, the recorder, and string and wind instruments in a loving, stress-free and nurturing environment. The students can learn music through either the traditional or Suzuki methods. Further, the students have regular recitals to introduce them to speaking and entertaining in public. The lessons are family friendly and are offered at the family's convenience. The teachers are dedicated and engaging. Even more, the proprietor loves children and is a joy to work with!

Our granddaughters have taken a combination of private piano lessons and group band lessons at Just Lovin Music Studios for the past six (6) years. They have blossomed into well mannered, confident, musically artistic students. In addition music has helped them improve their academic standing in school. All the instructors are amazingly gifted and bring out the absolute best in all the students.

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.

I have had the opportunity to see Just Lovin' Music Studios assist students by giving scholarships, providing students to channel their gifts to rest homes, Salvation Army , and various churches. Without a doubt JLM Studios expanded the professional life of many students.

My experience as an instructor for Just Lovin Music was the opportunity to see first hand the amazing transformation of student aptitude as well as discipline or if you will their "subject 2 change" in order to achieve a better understanding for their craft. This enrichment empowered them to move ahead not only in music but other classes as well.

This program has done nothing but provide opportunities for both of my young daughters to grow in the world of music. My youngest has been able to stay within the same music school, under the same director but work with a variety of teachers as her taste in instruments has changed. They have continued to encourage her growth in the world of music and its field. She has demonstrated poise and composure during several recitals as a soloist, a band member and an accompanist. Meanwhile, my oldest has taken advantage of the several years of piano lessons to now be able to play whenever called upon. She accompanies at the school's music recitals along with helping out during church services with the youth. Both of my children have gone beyond my own understanding in music. I thank Just Lovin' Music Studios for the opportunity, their patience and dedication to making this happen for them.

I worked for Just Lovin' Studios for almost two years. I with with the organization as a sub-contracted teacher in the Inglewood Unified Recorder Program and as a choir director. My experience with JLMS was exceptional because of the amount of support they provided to their employees. Every step of the way, the primary focus was giving the best service to our students by ensuring its teachers were well trained and given the proper resources to do our jobs. I know that funding was low, but that never prohibited JLMS from giving the the best service. Mrs. Love, the CEO was always visible on-site at least once a week and at each school, teachers, administration and students all knew who she was - a tremendous feat considering the amount of schools the organization serviced. As an employee, I always had great communication from EVERYONE in the organization. I was also given additional opportunities to expand with JLMS on new initiatives and projects beyond teaching the Recorder. I am a professional singer by trade, however, working for Just Lovin' Music allowed me to use my time and talent in a fulfilling and worthwhile way. Anytime JLMS asks me to help, I will.

JLMS has been a wonderful experience for our girls and family for the past 8 years! We could not have found a more nurturing and loving music school. Our children have grown to love and embrace the art of music. This program, while patient with the students, is really challeging fundamentally. I also appreciate the fact that our children have been exposed not just to piano but woodwinds, strings, and even songwriting classes. I would strongly recommend Just Lovin Music Studios for any person truly looking for a well rounded music program for children and adults.

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.

My experience with Just Lovin Music Studios has been exceptional. I have recommended students to Just Lovin Music studios, and I have watched them grow in their studies as well as knowing how to conduct themselves on stage. I am excited about the growth of Just Lovin Studios. They have become a community based organization which services the community in schools, private lessons, working with at risk children, and senior citizens. It is exciting to see many lives it has impacted so positively.

I have been in the audience for concerts put on by Just Lovin Music Studios. The students have always performed in an outstanding fashion, with skill and expression. The director puts her whole heart into every performance and we can see her passion as she leads her students.
