Dealing with many vendors while planning a wedding can be quite overwhelming but working with Sweet Harmony was a wonderful experience. I love being on top of everything, I am organized and very particular. However, I found Tara the owner amazing to work with throughout the whole process. She is professional reliable, accommodating and lovely. We hired a String Quartet to play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Then, just a month prior to the big day we decided to have a Jazz trio (Piano, Saxophone, vocal) playing while having dinner during the reception because we love live music. Tara made it happen! The day of the wedding all the musicians arrived early and played beautifully. While on our honeymoon my husband forgot to make the payment for the overtime dinner music. Tara was so patient she waited a few weeks before sending me a reminder. When I called to apologize she was very understanding and nice as always. We will definitely recommend company to our family and friends and we are looking forward to do business with them in the future. Thanks you Sweet Harmony! Carolane & David

I briefly took guitar lessons from Josh. I wanted to learn to play with other musicians and improvise, and his jazz background is what caught my attention. The sessions were informative and Josh was very encouraging. I had to stop unexpectedly but what I learned in the few lessons I took was very helpful and got me out of the rut I fall into while practicing on my own.

Vocal session as they should be! I can HIGHLY recommend Dave! Whether you are a new to singing, getting back in the swing or just keeping your voice limber, Dave is an absolute joy to work with. I have been touring with a rock band for many years and working with Dave has widened my range significantly and has helped me unlock my hidden potential!

Soulful Sounds were the perfect choice for our son's graduation party! It was an amazing night with thunderstorms, rainbow & music ! They played to a large gathering of over a 100 people. A very professional band who adjusted to the situation and played remarkably. Highly recommend!

Marla Mase is an extraordinary event planner, creator of party magic and Producer! After having been in the business for a couple of decades and working in so many different venues, types of events, parties and performances, Marla has an incredible team. She’s amassed a phenomenal, devoted group of performers, artists, designers & caterers whom she employs at all her parties, depending on need and skill set. I have worked with Marla on several creative projects and events and had a ball working with her. She is the ultimate professional, but always works in a relaxed, easygoing fashion. She is open to discussion and will always brainstorm to bring ones vision to life. Recently she produced a Rock show and party in Tribeca for me that hosted an amazing band, along with several international actors, dancers and singers. Marla hired one of her designers to transform the old Tribeca firehouse into an underworld of sea creatures and magic. It was spectacular. The food was a beautifully abundant array of hors devours and beverages. Hailing from Tribeca and having worked in the New York area for so many years for hundreds of high-end clients, Marla is truly cutting edge. She has an eye for the unique, and is able to adapt to the vision of her client. Marla really gets the job done. She’s personable and lovely and I always feel I’m in good hands with her at the helm.

My experience with Yuto, I could say, was life-changing. The amount of not only knowledge, but really feeling of what Jazz and music in general can be, was endless. Yuto treats you as a real friend, and his lessons are both very practical, but also with a theoretical foundation that really provides a real sense of what you are playing or composing. Also, Yuto, above all, is a great human being, with a big heart and passion for music. We ended up recording some things at his studio and continue to be good friends. I will always thank him and consider him to be one of the best musicians I´ve played with and hope to play again soon with him. To anyone that is looking for lessons on Jazz, or classical or any kind of music. I could, with all sincerety say, Yuto is the one for you. -Diego D.

I had started getting into Latin music a little over a year ago when I met first met Nick Herman. Originally, I tried to learn to play Latin percussion (congas, bongos, timbales etc.) from books and instructional videos. I also tried lessons with a few different musicians. I was at it for months, however, I found my progress to be very slow. Eventually, I confronted Nick about lessons. After only 5 lessons, my bongo playing had improved exponentially! I would play my bongos with other musicians in the park and after one or two songs, many people would compliment me on my playing. One night I played a duet with a guitarist who would compliment me on my playing after every song. Later, I came to find out he was the leader of a salsa band who frequently performed around the city! Shortly after that I made Nick my official trainer on the bongos and cowbell! Nick Herman also leads his own band. I think anyone who is serious about learning Latin percussion would benefit greatly by having Nick as an instructor. I wish I had began lessons with him sooner!

The Verdict played at our welcome dinner in VT the night before our wedding for around 150 guests. They were amazing, and exceeded our already sky-high expectations. We and our guests had an awesome time, and we have The Verdict to thank for it! They are extremely talented musicians, and you can tell they love to play together; there is a soul to their music that is not typical of most bands. They really read the mood of the crowd and make sure everyone is having a good time – they played softer background music during cocktail hour and dinner, and then switched to dancing music after dinner that got everyone out on the dance floor. They are true entertainers – getting everyone at the event out of their seats dancing, laughing and celebrating. John, the band leader, was a pleasure to work with and was extremely flexible and responsive. He answered all our questions beforehand and worked with us to make sure the evening was exactly what we wanted. They sound amazing – their song list is extensive and varied, and they can play anything from roots reggae to pop with a great reggae vibe. We highly recommend the Verdict for any party or event – they were a pleasure to work with and will make sure everyone has an AWESOME time. -Emma & Jeff

I took lessons with Billy for 3 years. He's a phenomenal teacher and just a real stand up guy. He stresses the importance of knowing all your scales and all the modes, and teaches you different ways to incorporate them into your playing. He teaches you not only how to play, but also the reasoning behind what you play. He teaches everything, from jazz, to metal, funk, ska, punk, and so much more. He's also very big on ear training so except to sing a little. It might be awkward at first but it really does help you improve! We typically spent the first half of the lesson after warming up focusing on theory, and the second half implementing the theory to solidify that knowledge. I know that for me personally, I'm easily discouraged, and Billy never stopped supporting me and never let me give up on myself. I can't recommend Billy enough!

Dan's Band made our fundraiser event extra special. Excellent communication and promptness - they are super professional and arrived, set up, got to performing right away...and took very little break time. You can tell these guys really enjoy what they do. When the time came to finish, they asked if I wanted them to keep going for a bit - totally appreciated that. Oh and they sounded great! Real talent and the price was right. I am literally looking for additional events to use them again.

Mikhail played at my family Christmas dinner and he was wonderful!! We all loved him and I cant say enough good things about him. He was warm and friendly, very professional, and perfectly charming. He’s an excellent pianist and treated us to a little jazz, a little classical, great standards from the 40s, and of course, Christmas songs. Thank you, Mikhail. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
