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 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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
