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'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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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.
