I hired Sweet Harmony musicians for our wedding October 2016. The piano/violin duo played beautifully for our ceremony. They were punctual and professional, well dressed young ladies who really set the tone for our ceremony. The pianist came two days earlier for our rehearsal. We had a harpist play for the entry to the reception and everyone was amazed. These musicians are awesomely talented. Last month I experienced the death of my grandfather and the night before the funeral service our pianist became unavailable. I immediately thought of Sweet Harmony. Not only did Tara answer her phone after 9pm but she connected me with an amazing pianist who played beautifully for the service the next day without any time to practice. He was respectable and kind. He even played an extra selection that was not initially requested. Where would we have been without Sweet Harmony? I will always keep them in mind for any function. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. The Bobcombe-Ahmad Family
Ivan played cocktail hour at my wedding - not only was his music great, but I really appreciated his responsiveness and professionalism. He made the whole process a breeze!
Thanks Alan! Everyone had fun with the music at the wedding!
I've played with Jimi since the first time I picked up the instrument (bass for 11 years). Lessons with him enabled me to play in big bands and small ensembles at the college level, as well as have a steady stream of gigs when I was in school. His method of teaching is sadly growing rarer and rarer in private lesson study. Rather than mandate to the student rote musical examples which are a.) boring and b.) relate nothing about learning actual music, Jimi's approach is a holistic one that has faith in pupil's drive and intelligence. He demonstrates aspects of music theory fundamentals, and then has the student utilize the formulas he has imparted to extrapolate the rest, with his guidance of course. If the student has trouble, Jimi instructs to fill in the gaps but never spoon feeds. This method insures the student actually learns and internalizes the information, rather than becomes an automaton. Moreover, Jimi encourages the students to bring in pieces that they actually like to play! So instead of spending months hammering out a highly diluted version of a Bach morning song, the student can bring in pieces by Zep, the Strokes, the Black Keys, Rihanna, whatever! Jimi then instructs through elucidating the music theory fundamentals within the songs that drew the student to the instrument in the first place! Jimi is professional, yet laid back. I have continued my friendship with him after studying and going on to professional life. He's just a good dude to know. Lastly, and this should be the last thing you consider. Jimi's rates are always reasonable. For private study in college, I paid 3-4 times as much for a lesson as what I paid when taking a lesson with Jimi. I hope you Long Islander aspiring musicians realize what a gem you have there.
Vasiliy and his band were amazing at my wedding and guests are still talking about them ! They played a variety of music from modern to classic and it all sounded so beautiful. Vasiliy also spent a lot of time with me helping find the music for the wedding March and ceremony processional. The music we picked worked really well with the theme of my wedding. It is very easy to work with Consonance Music because they very helpful and responsive. I would definitely use them for other events. Thank you so much for my wedding day memorable!!
Sean and his band provided ideal lively jazz music at a local event. They were super easy to communicate with beforehand, and they played beautifully to a large very appreciative crowd. I strongly recommend them.
I looooove Soulful Sounds! They are my favorite band. They played at my wedding in August 2015. I'm so glad I gave them a chance. Besides picking my dress they were the best decision for my wedding. People still talk about how great the band was. My only regret was that I didn't have them play the whole night. The guys are so prefessional and they dress for the job. I highly recommend them to everyone I know. I can't wait for my next event to have Soulful Sounds play. Keep up the good work guys. I feel like they get better every time I hear them. Love Vicky
Drew arrived early to set everything up and played beautiful music at our wedding ceremony. It’s exactly everything we wanted. Thanks !
Joyce has been teaching my son trumpet for 3 years. How do I appreciate her? Let me count the ways! - Son played trumpet in school band throughout middle school before starting lessons with Joyce. He strongly resisted learning to sight read all those years. Joyce had him (happily!) sight reading within the first few months. - Joyce helped my son correct some technique problems which were frustrating him. His progress was impressive, and he won a coveted spot in the area all-state band. - Joyce is open to working with music that her students enjoy. Jazz improvisation has become a staple of lessons that my son looks forward to, and solos in his school jazz band have flowed from this. - Whenever I listen in on lessons I always hear laughter. Even when my son is tired and grumpy before a lesson, he comes out of the lesson feeling great. -Joyce loves cats! Your cat will be treated like royalty whenever Joyce is around.
Mark Weisman has been my son's piano teacher since he was 11 years old. Alex is now a proficient pianist at age 21. Under the tutelage of Mark, my son advanced from a music student to a true musician. Mark is an engaging teacher who introduces his students to a variety of music genres, keeping classical, standards and popular music all part of the student's repertoire. My son Alex's interest in music was spurred on by Mark's enthusiasm and style of teaching. The Music Workshop conducts annual performances for parents and friends so we can see the progress our children have made. My son is now in college and still studies with Mark on breaks and in the summer. Alex belongs to The Jazz Band at Loyola University as well as his own band. He has played professionally for cocktail hours and theater productions. Mark has inspired Alex to continue his music into his adulthood. Mark Weisman is an exemplary teacher and person.
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.
Nico wrote and performed an original song at my wedding. She took the time to learn about me and my husband, and wrote a beautiful song that really captured our relationship. She also played the music we walked in to.
I Love working with Jeff and all of his bands and bandmates! He's very easy to work with, very fair and reasonable. He and all of his bands play great and give it their all every time they play!
I'm not a musician myself, but I was blown over by how easy Caroline was to work with and she is clearly a talented violinist--she helped make our wedding really beautiful. Some of my musician friends commented on how technically amazing her playing was, and I'd definitely defer to their thoughts on the music front :). I'd highly recommend Caroline to play at any event where music, professionalism, and quality really matters! Thanks, Caroline!
I worked with Sabina's husband, Vilian Ivantchev, whom I connected with through Sabina. Vilian played classical guitar during my wedding ceremony and also accompanied me when I sang to my bride as she walked down the aisle. Vilian played beautifully. He was very easy to work with and also was very accommodating by spending two rehearsal sessions. I wholeheartedly recommend him!
Chanan was a joy to work with! Knowledgeable and skilled and very creative. He helped produce a record of sacred music for me and also provided back up guitar for my band when needed a few times in Dallas. He is an exceptional engineer and guitar player with a fine ear for detail.
Duetti was perfect for our daughter's wedding. Their selection of music played during the cocktail reception was exactly the style and tone we had requested. Well done, Michele!
Marwan played at our wedding and was great
I've been at several events where Carol and her band have performed. Each time, she sang a mix of jazz and blues, and she and the band sounded and looked great! The musicians who play with her are really professional. I also noticed Carol is very organized and she kept the evening moving and the crowd was happy. I'd highly recommend hiring her and the band for any event where you want your guests to have a terrific time!
We hired Sho in early May to perform as a string quartet at the cocktail hour for our wedding, and we could not be happier with his performance! I love classical music but do not know string quartets as well, so Sho helped recommend some songs that would fit well. He was always very responsive and professional in communicating while planning the event. And best of all was the performance, as the quartet looked and sounded superb! It is clear that they all love music and are very talented and professional. I will highly recommend Sho to anyone in the future!
Hired Anthem for a birthday party and it went great. They sound exactly like the bands they cover and put on a great show. They're pro, no goofy embarrassing talk between songs and the price was right. The sound was great and they DJ'd during the breaks. Would definitely rehire. Thanks guys!
