I wanted to have a live music at the milestone birthday party for my wife. Louis responded my request quickly. He explained the details of the project over the phone. He has done a great job understanding and providing the music I was looking for. He send a detailed contract quickly. Two musicians showed up at the party ahead of time to set up.. They were very professional and pleasant people. The quality of music they played was amazing. Everyone at the party was very impressed with their performance. I was extremely happy with the project. I will definitely reach out to Louis for the next party.

Working with Sweet Harmony was fantastic, every step of the way. I worked with Tara, the owner as well as one of the musicians on the day. We had a keyboardist and violinist for the ceremony and a keyboardist and saxophone player for the cocktail hour. We were able to choose all of the songs we wanted for the ceremony, including a special request to play during a break. Tara helped me select pieces that would work well together while making sure to find the perfect place for the wide range of songs we wanted included. (Fields of Gold - check, Ave Maria - check!) It really elevated the ceremony and we're so lucky to have had them! Unfortunately, I didn't get to hear the sax & keyboard during cocktail hour, and from what I heard, I missed quite a performance! Friends could not stop talking about it, and even mentioned that they stayed close to the music so that they wouldn't miss any songs! I can't recommend Sweet Harmony highly enough! Even if you are not sure if you "need" live music, I'd suggest that you look into them. Tara is happy to work with you on your needs and I think you'll be convinced it's worth it!

I called it "God's perfect timing! Here's our story...Our family, recently bowed our heads, as our 97 year old father, united with his family in Heaven. We were blessed to enjoy every single minute we spent together. God bless my dad, "Babe's" soul. I wanted to honor my dad, by having live music playing at his service, as my dad loved music... he had 3,001, 33 1/3 records. All his friends and family gathered to celebrate his adventurous life. Scott Samuels promptly contacted me after I left a message requesting a vocalist/guitarist! His professionalism is "above" all others. I have EVER met. The rest, is a moment in time, my memories will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for creating this site for the world to utilize. Scott, you're a fantastic performer/true humanitarian. I could go on and on, but those memories are mine. Betsy, Babes baby "DAURTER" as dad would say!

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.

Testimonial for David Joel, Guitar Instructor: My name is Ken and I have been playing guitar for 43 years since the age of 12. I took lessons for about 2 years at the very beginning. I never learned how to read music in the traditional sense, just tab. I have played in classic rock bands over the years. Several years ago I reached a point in my playing that I felt I could not get any better and was playing the same music, leads over and over again. I was convinced that all I could learn was what I could hear or was shown by other musicians. I knew I developed bad technique habits over the years as well. I wanted to get better and began looking for an instructor on-line and found David Joel. A brief review of David’s web-site indicated he was well-versed in all styles on electric, acoustic and classical guitar. The backbone of David’s approach is based on the Berklee Series Modern Method books by William Leavitt. It requires the guitarist to read and play music…something I never did and as it turns out contributed to my “illiteracy” or lack of language or “data” as David refers to music. In the 2 ½ years that I studied with David he completely changed my technique, increased my potential to play a variety of styles and improvise and helped me to achieve many of my goals as a player. He is amazingly encouraging and very real when it comes to students of all ages. I currently enjoy playing in a number of classic rock bands and praise band at church. Thanks David!

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.

Rebekah and Tim provided live music at my Wedding Ceremony a week ago. Not only are they extremely talented and understood my style and what I was looking for - but they were professional and a delight to work with. I will certainly hire them again when I have an appropriate opportunity!

I have performed with David in a bigband setting and in a small group at my church. He is always punctual, professional and prepared. You will find David to be quiet, modest and very caring. It is impossible to ignore the joy evident in his performances. he brings this passion to his teaching. I would recommend him very highly as a performer and as a teacher. I have heard some of his students. They perform very well when considering their age and length of study. Developing confidence in performance is a priority for David.

    We hired the band to play at our neighborhood block party and they were awesome! Music was enjoyed by all, from young children to senior citizens. They played a great very variety of music including Jazz standards and popular tunes. They were very professional, played as scheduled and at just the right volume.
