ABSTRACT

Technology-oriented tools/devices have long been an indispensable part of music as well as music education for many years. It is of great importance in music education for students and teachers and the future of music to follow closely and use the technological developments in the present age in which technology directs the future. The aim of this research is to determine the use of technology and music technologies in music training students' field education courses in general and to determine the contribution of technology in both learning and application fields both individually and in general terms. The survey model was used in the study. Data were obtained through questionnaires. Three open-ended questions were asked to first-, second-, third- and fourth-year undergraduate students about using technology in their field courses during their fall semester and in their daily lives. The obtained data were analyzed using descriptive analysis technique, frequency-percentage and arithmetic mean. As a result, it has been found that technological materials are not used adequately in the process of the theoretical and applied courses in undergraduate education even though students benefit from music technologies in their individual work and daily life, and software Technologies are used much more than hardware Technologies.
