Abstract

Problem Statement: Music teacher training programs comprise courses on the field, courses on teaching as a profession, and courses aimed at increasing the genearal information of the student. The course of "Music Education Teaching Methods" included in the program differs from the other courses as it includes both field instruction and teaching instruction. The fact that music is an abstract field that requires different arrangements and that the criterion of evaluation differs from other fields increases the importance of the course "Music Education Teaching Methods". In order for this course to fulfil its purpose, the students who take the course need to grasp its significance and develop a positive attitude towards the course.
