    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!

    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.

Team of Sweet Harmony Music

Tara Bhrushundi

Tara Bhrushundi

Owner

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.

If you want some funny and thoughtful adventure stories for a rainy day, here's my RV travel blog from a few years ago. :)

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me and my company. Now it's our turn to get to know you!
