    We booked a Sweet Harmony piano trio (Piano, Violin, Cello) for our wedding on 2/17/18. We wanted a slowed-down ballad version of a rock song as the song the bride would walk down the aisle to. They were able to make it happen and played it exactly the way we imagined. Also, a few days prior to the event we found an obscure foreign song played on guitar that we loved and wanted to play for the family procession. They were able to adapt it to their instruments and play it perfectly on very little notice. Lastly, a snowstorm started as out wedding was a few hours from getting started. The weather made things a little chaotic, but the Sweet Harmony Trio arrived early, set up, and played overtime for us.

    Congratulations Jhon and Emilie, and thanks so much for posting this review! We loved playing your wedding music. Glad to learn the cool David Broza song, I'm sure we'll play it again :) Wishing all happiness to you both!

    It was such a pleasure working with Tara and her team. We were able to easily select music from their huge selection of classical, modern and romantic musical selections. I'm so happy that we decided to have live music for our wedding ceremony.

    Thank you Amanda for this amazing review, and for the opportunity to play your wedding music! We loved the setting with the violinist and pianist (me) on the stage, and you in front. :) It was a very sweet ceremony!

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Tara has a masters degree in Jazz Piano Performance from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Most of our musicians have masters and even doctoral degrees in their performing instrument, and they all have many years of wedding performance experience. As to wedding planning, we regularly look at articles on WeddingWire, MyWedding, The Knot, GigMasters, and more... and stay in touch with social media and apps and mobile sites because that's what people are using to plan events. Experience is the best teacher when it comes to planning a wedding!
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      Tara Buzash started Sweet Harmony in 2008 as a piano/violin duo with her friend and colleague Heather Teffenhart. The network gradually and naturally expanded as Heather and Tara met new musicians, traveled, and took work from new customers. Today Tara books a network of 100+ musicians from Connecticut through Delaware!
    Coverage Area for Sweet Harmony is about 1+ miles of Plainfield, NJ.
