Just Lovin’ Music has helped many people to be great musicians and have more meaningful productive lives! It’s a blessing to so many lives that keeps on giving!!!
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.
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. (Review entered by GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of the reviewer).
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. (This review was entered by a GreatNonprofits staff member on behalf of the reviewer).
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.
Just Lovin Music Studios help me with an original composition. The project went very well and I was able to gain a new appreciation for music
I have attended many of the musical functions for Just Lovin Music Studios. My son also participated in a musical produced by this same organization. I have seen young new talent be introduced, cultivated and matured.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
Just Lovin Music Studios is a phenomenal program that fosters the musical development (and often expertise) of young and sometimes not so young aspiring musicians. As a former student of JLMS my appreciation for music has grown by leaps and bounds. The patience and dedication that Michelle Love displays in her untiring quest to broaden the musical horizons of her students is like non other. Not to mention the extraordinary talent that Michelle herself displays on the keys. Her performances alone serve as an inspiration to those who may have never touched a piano. Just Lovin Music Studios not only provides an education in music to it's students, but it instills an extremely high level of discipline and self-esteem, which trickles over into all facets of their lives.
Just Lovin Music is an excellent music program for young people. My son attended the program for learning how to play the clarinet. He enjoyed every class and built a strong foundation in music. This program is a great opportunity for kids to grow not only musically but in other areas such as: mathematics, time management, stage performance,and even social skills. I would highly recommend Just Lovin Music.
Over the last 5 or 6 yrs i have attended many recitals and have witnessed growth of the students from first recitals to playing classical tunes and even their own compositions.this is wonderful orgination and add so much to the students and community.it would a loss to both students and community if J.L.M.S was unable to continue due to loss of fundings. Mr & mrs W. H. Potts
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.
Recognizing and enabling the gifts our children process is a true art. With the fine arts being removed from public schools over 20 years ago (deemed unnecessary and of no value, all that is needed is reading and writing) I have watched a who generation of children drift into what is really of no value as they no conscience. The arts foster an appreciation of life that math and science alone cannot. The "X Generation" was forced to take to the streets, breaking new laws that forbade their creative abilities (raw rap and graffiti). Just Loving Music answers the question raised by Itzak Pearlman 20 years ago, when he warned society of the disaster rendered with the elimination of the arts. My grandson who has a clinical ADHA diagnosis has learned to focus, memorize, and tune out all but what requires his concentration both in school and at home-- through music. I cannot praise the teachers, and especially Michelle Love, enough for giving my grandson the ability to appreciate live through music. We love you!
I have had the distinct honor and privilege of working directly with Just Loving Music Studios on a Major Theatrical Production entitled "Carnegie Hall Is In My View", and was always amazed at the level of professionalism that the chidren from the youngest to the oldest played. The work and investment that Just Lovin Music Studios put in each child is amazing and it is evident. I have also been part of the recitals where their individual talents are displayed and have watched and observed parents moved with emotions in appreciation and gratefulness. It is my hope and prayer that JLMS would one day have the support and funding to impact nations with their program to uplift the hearts of children. Candace Cole-Kelly
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!
JLMS is truly a light of inspiration. It is a place of caring, learning, and sharing. The integrity of this organization and achievements within the music arena is truly unparalled. It's a place where children can truly get in touch with the musician within.
My family and I absolutely love the Just Loving Music classes as well as the faculty. My 11 year old daughter initially started taking piano classes in the summer of 2009 with Mrs. Love, and up until this point has made entraordinary progress with developing her piano skills. The JLMS team is truly dedicated to ensuring that each child achieves the goal of learning musical theory and standard techniques in a creative, fun loving way that can be easily adapted by people of all ages. I highly admire the ultimate passion for teaching and commitment that is displayed by each of the JLMS staff personnel. I would definitely recommend JLMS to any family in search of a profound, incomparable music program.
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 am a former instructor of Just Lovin Music Studios and I know first hand the level of training being rendered to JLMS's students. JLMS is the first academy that comes to mind when people inquire about obtaining musical instruction for their children and youth. The staff are extremely professional, personable, and versed in their musical areas of expertise. I would recommend JLMS to anyone who is seriously interested in learning under the tutelage of a "tried, tested, and found true" musical institution such as this.
Just Lovin' Music Studios is an excellent program for kids. I have seen the positive effect it has on the community. The company really strives for excellence.
I currently have two sons that are taking piano lessons from Just Lovin Music Studios. I find the company to be very professional and my boys love coming to music lessons each week. For the oldest boy who is almost six, taking music lesson is teaching him the discipline of praciting and focusing until it is done perfect, rather than giving up become the music is too hard. The youngest is in his first year of music. I have seen a change in getting him to concentrate for about 5 minutes to pracite on the piano to almost 15 minutes at times. This will help him when he starts kindergarten next year. Overall, I am very satisfied as a former staff member, parent, and voluteered. Just Lovin Music has inspired my boys to be able to focus, concentrate, and be confident about who they are as young musicians.
As a grandmother of one of JLMS students,who stated when in kindergarten. I am very proud of his progresion on the piano. The teachers gave him their best. His recitals showed he was very good with his presentations. I recommend Just Lovin'Music Studios for new students who are interested in the Art of Music R. Watson
Just Lovin' Music gives young people the opportunity to express themselves through the gift of music. It's not only something that is available for young people to stay busy throughout the week, JLMS changes lives. JLMS not only enhances students musical talents but students are exposed to a positive environment and positive role models. I've seen students grades rise and behavior change because of JLMs. JLMS becomes young people's exscape, as a teacher it sure was mine.
JLMS teaches music appreciation to children of many ages. Children as young as 4 years old are playing the piano in front of an audience. The joy of seeing how proud they are when the audience claps for them is truly an award itself. My twin daughters have come so far in 5 years. Not only in music; but with confidence and self esteem. Music has also helped them academically in school. JLMS staff is a family filled with love and patience in their teaching methods.
Just Lovin Music Studios provides excellent music exposure and instruction to all of its students. With full sponsorship it would be an asset to every community. I have attended many of their recitals and concerts and have been impressed with the performances of the students. Whether young or old, the students have demonstrated a love for music and a quality of discipline required for such performances. Just Lovin Music Studios provide a safe, loving environment where learning can occur. For these reasons and more I have been a sponsor to this organization. I have told my friends about this organization and fully intend to enroll my child in Just Lovin Music Studios as soon as she is old enough. Just Lovin Music Studios is deserving of all the sponsorship, grants, and donations available.
My daughter who turns 21 years old today was a student at JLMS as an 8 year old. She was guided by the most professional, spirt lead individuals. Who took the time to direct her appreciation for music and also listened to her everyday concerns. We traveled over 40 miles once a week to meet with the staff at JLM and was always greeted with Love. If we could not make our appointment at the school her teacher (Angela) allowed us to come to her home to rehearse. When Jasmin was performing singing parts in plays or performing at school Angela would coach her outside of the school just to make sure her pitch was on. We appreciate the time, care and genuine love we received from Just Lovin Music.
Just Lovin Music Studios, really does what it says in its name. They LOVE Music and the joy that it brings to their clients. I have had the pleasure of working closely with this top notch organization since 2000 and they are the best at what they do! They genuinely care about the well being and progress of their students as well as provide a positive outlet for inner city youth to express their emotions and feelings through music and the arts. I highly recommend this organization as a 5 star rating!
It was a pleasure seeing my nephew shine on stage at the Just Lovin Music Recital. The confidence he is gaining from mastering both the piano and saxophone will be an invaluable tool that will serve him well later in life. Looking forward to the next recital and seeing all the amazing young ladies and gentelmen.... Vincent Holmes
Just Lovin Music brought back the love of the Arts back at La Tijera School. 2 years they blessed our students with the fundamentals on learning why we need music in the schools. It was with great disappointment that we didd't have the funds to have them return again this year.
I was a guest instructor at just lovin music studio and I found people of all ages engaging in and sharing their growing talents with each other. Mrs. Love islike a big sister to those who were evan older than she. This school, I think needs to be exposed more on a broader platform. Mrs. Love cares so much about her students. I think that this school is filling a void that will cause more completeness in a lot of lives both now and in the future.
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.
As a classroom teacher, I noticed a definite difference in my students interest in academics once they were involved in music. They became more confident, eager to participate in classroom discussions and activities and happier people in general. The music program allowed them to experience success when they performed in recitals, school presentations or just in front of family and friends.
I am a former student and my life has been impacted not only as a student, but as a friend. The piano techniques I learned as a child has enabled me to embrace and enhance my musical career. Furthermore, the relationship that stemmed from my childhood continues to grow as an adult. I am so pleased that thousands of youth have experienced the same love and passion I received from Just Lovin Music Studios.
Just Lovin Music Studios has served the community for several years with superb training not only in specific musical instrumental skills, but also in self discipline, self-confidence, self-respect with a commitment to excellence in every aspect of life. Students are trasnformed into outstanding performing musicians.
This is the 3rd year that my 10 year old son has taken both piano and saxophone lessons at JLMS. I have seen his confidence and creativity blossom. The teachers are not only excellent musically, but are warm and supportive. They really create an environment where children can learn and grow.
As a parent of two young sons, I wanted to enhance their educational experience with private music lessons. Unlike when I was their age, music is not a part of many school curriculums. I was invited to JLMS recital and was blown away by the level of proficiency of the children as well as their stage presence, grace and utter professionaism during the recital. I contacted Michelle Love and found out rather quickly that her last name is no coincidence. She exuded such a love and warmth for children and people in general. I signed my children up to take piano and violin lessons. They loved it and I loved it! We were all just lovin' music! Michelle's passion for music is evidenced when she plays the piano and instructs her children. She passes her passion for music on to the children. Her staff is highly qualified and professional. I was thrilled to learn that she was able to take her program into the public school system years ago, but due to budget cuts, those programs sadly ended. JLMS needs additional resources to be all that they can be in the community. Our schools desperately need their services but unfortunately, they can't do it for free. Studies show that music lessons enhance a child's educational experience exponentially. It is our hope that JLMS will get the endorsement and support that they need to fully flourish under the leadership and vision of its founder, Michelle Love, as she pours her passion and love into the world's most precious resources... our children.
As a mother of 4 children with experiences in both public and private school settings, I have found Just Lovin Music Studios to provide instruction on a level which cannot compare to any of its kind. Each teacher is hand selected for their knowledge, education and expertise in relating to students of all levels and backgrounds. The students are given instruction that always seems to inspire and challenge them. Constant feedback with the parents and caretakers are relevant and assist in the progress which is like no other music program I have seen both in and outside of the school setting. The instruction and practice sessions are culminated in multiple opportunities to perform and share talents with others. I have never been at a JLMS performance that didn't end in a well-earned standing ovation.
My daughter took piano lessons under Just Lovin music studios for about 10 years. She now enjoys playing the piano, writing songs and even recording. Just Lovin Music Studios gave my daughter the confidence she needed to develop and further her music career. She is now graduating from college and wants to pursue music full time. Thank you Just Lovin Music Studios for this great investment. It was well worth it.
Just Lovin Music Studios truly honor the need to involve children in the world of the arts. The leadership of the staff and instructors goes above, beyond and then some in bringing out the children's true abilities. The performances of the children demonstrate the results of the professional, yet nurturing care they receive as a result of attending classes in this wonderful setting. I was priviledged to attend an extraordinary musical concert some time ago that showcased the musical talents of my grandchildren's friend. I was impressed and entertained beyond measure. Since then my grandchildren have become a part of that wonderful, electric atmosphere. My own children were exposed to the arts growing up, so I know firsthand the value of this type of exposure. I hope that Just Loving Music Studios is around for a very long time to continue the magic of exposure to the arts. Sincerely, Willia Edmonds
Have you ever been to the recitals?? It's a wonderful feeling! I've partnerd with Just lovin music because I believe music is an essential part of early childhood development. Just lovin music is the perfect venue for the musical developement. The genuine care, comfort and personal attention each child recieves is what makes it so special. I can't wait for my child to begin her lessons!
I was a piano/song writing/recorder teacher with JLMS for 7 years. Michelle Love is one of the most innovative, talented, compassionate people I have ever met. Her unconditional love for JLMS and the students is infectious and taught me tremendous amounts of patience, understanding, and teaching methods. JLMS is very active in the community and strives to keep music education a part of children's lives, and are proactive in doing so. I know that they will continue to sustain a presence in the community and have great success!
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.
Just Lovin Music Studios is simply amazing! The way the students and parents respond at the recitals is so inspirational! Music is so important to children in the early days of their development, it is something they will carry with them the rest of their lives.
I'm so proud of JLMS and all they accomplish. The teachers are some of the best anywhere around and there is a serious strive for perfection and professionalism.
WONDERFUL CONCERTS. VERY PROFESSIONAL. A gift to the community and schools. Students are very motived by very skilled staff. Would recommend this orgsnization.
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!
What a wonderful organization this is! The personal care and involement of the staff is outstanding. The children love learning and you can see the pride in their accomplishments at every spring and holiday recital.
Just Loving Music and the administraters there are some of the best, post professional people I have ever encounter. They have true passion for children and the communities that that come from. When my daughter started piano lessons there at 4yrs old, I watched her develop a passion for music that i didn't know she had. Her potential was recognized and nurtured at all times. She is 14 now and has such fond memories of her lessons and recitals and is still applying all that she learned. I am forever grateful to this organization for there commitment to excellence and for their undying compassion for others.
My daughter has grown into a confident musician as a result of the highly effective teaching methods and experienced instructors at JLMS. Mrs. Love's ensures that the children, regardless of their age, are having fun while learning their craft. The teachers provide a nurturing and enriching environment while incorporating the performance skills necessary for the childs future in the music. My daughter will remain with JLMS until she graduates from high school.
The program was excellent for our Students, all materials were provided, instructors were prompt, very friendly and patient with the students and staff.
I was an instructor at JLMS a few years ago and during my time there, I was able to grow so much as a musician myself and it helped equip me with one-on-one personal skills with students. Now, I am a high school teacher in Bellflower, CA and some of the skills I was fortunate enough to acquire from JLMS have really helped me excel in my work. Mrs. Love was a wonderful boss and mentor and her last name really describes how she runs this business. From what I've seen, JLMS has grown in leaps and bounds and I am proud to have been a part of it, if only for just a short time.
