Amazing Service & Kindness
Tara was amazing in working with my husband and I to assure that our every need was met. When she didn't have a song in the repetiore (Neverending Story theme), she was willing to add it free of charge. After that, when all of this insanity of COVID hit and we needed to pospone indefinitely, she was very kind and understanding and met our every need and answered all of our concerns. I'd definitely reccomend them to anyone.Sent on 05/18/2020

A beautiful little symphony in the woods
I cannot recommend Tara and her network of top class musicians enough. From start to finish, the experience of booking a string trio for our outdoor wedding was easy, worry-free and fun. The Sweet Harmony website has videos showing what all the instrument combinations sound like, which was so helpful in narrowing down the sound we wanted. My bride and I were able to customize our ceremony and reception song list and were so impressed at how well-rehearsed the trio were down to every detail. We also appreciated their flexibility and poise when we asked to make some last minute changes on the big day. My only regret is not bringing more cash for their tip!Sent on 11/24/2020

Music for our ceremony
We probably have watched every single video this company has put out. We were looking for a string instrument for our ceremony and we were pointed in this direction. Since day one we have received a very quick response and they are very comparable to others. They make sure to inform you of all the types of music they can play.Sent on 12/11/2019

Team of Sweet Harmony Music
Hi! I'm Tara Bhrushundi, pianist and owner of Sweet Harmony. I live in Manhattan's Upper West Side with my husband Abhishek, and I am dedicated to connecting people through the world of live music.
I grew up in Princeton, New Jersey as a young scholar, athlete, and musician. My father taught me basketball and softball, and I now apply those sports lessons to running my business. Stick to it, work as a team, win when you can and learn when you don't!
I took to jazz piano from age six, loving the sound and creating my own blues songs. My high school had no instrumental music program, so I started and led the school's first official jazz band. I took a roundabout route through college and ended up graduating from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin with a degree in Chinese.
I then spent two years teaching music and English in the People's Republic of China. I speak the language to this day.
Sweet Harmony was born from two friends in New Jersey who loved music, coming together to play and share music with the world: Heather Teffenhart on violin and me on piano. Our reputation grew, and our network of musicians grew and grew.
It's been 12 years and Sweet Harmony now gets calls from all over the country. I'm more than happy to connect people with excellent local musicians, so you'll have beautiful live music for the important moments in your lives: weddings, birthdays, and celebrations of a thousand types and sizes!
I believe that live music is essential to our lives. It's unique -- it can't be replaced or forgotten. The styles of music change as society evolves, but the peace and inspiration of live music is forever.
I also believe in the principles of business that support the work we musicians do. Honesty, professionalism, compassion, and high standards are my core values.
I earned a Master of Music in Jazz Piano Performance from Rutgers University. Some of my awards include the Pee Wee Russell Jazz Scholarship, the New Jersey Arts Collective Music Composition Contest Grand Prize, and the New Jersey Small Business Development Center Success Award for Sweet Harmony. While at Rutgers, I was chosen as one of eight young female jazz pianists from around the world to participate in the Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Workshop at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
I also served for seven years on the nonprofit Board of Directors of the Greater Princeton Steinway Society, which promotes piano scholarship and performance in the community.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me and my company. Now it's our turn to get to know you!
I've had the pleasure of working with Tara and other Sweet Harmony musicians several times. They are always professional (arriving on time and ready to rock) and do a beautiful job with the music. I highly recommend them for your wedding.
Sweet Harmony is a very reliable group of professional musicians that cater to the needs of your event. The organizer, Tara, is great at communicating and very easy to work with. Would highly recommend Sweet Harmony to any couple!
Tarah and Sweet Harmony are always professional and accomodating. Their service is unmatched. Will always use Sweet Harmony for all of my live music needs.
