T.A.S.T.E. is located in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill area of North Carolina.

We are dedicated to teaching students how to master the Violin, Viola, and/or Cello, following Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy of teaching. Our program has weekly private lessons, twice a month group lessons and monthly solo recitals. Although we have produced numerous top-notch professional musicians, our goal is to produce successful students who love and enjoy sharing their music — making our world a brighter, happier place.

On our website you will be able to discover who we are, meet our faculty, keep up with our regularly scheduled events and contact us with any questions.

Common Questions

How do I rent/purchase a violin?

Please do not rent or purchase an instrument until you have begun lessons with a teacher. He/she will direct you about proper size and instrument source.

I know nothing about music. How can I be an integral part of the Suzuki Triangle?

Most Suzuki parents are not musicians. In the beginning, you will learn right along with your child.

How much do lessons cost?

Each teacher sets his/her hourly rate. Group lessons are $220/yr. We have a minimum of 5 group lessons each semester and the group lesson fee pays for the monthly recitals, also.
