ABSTRACT

The relationship between communication, self-esteem and the attitude towards music teaching, which are all necessary features for a music teaching candidate, has been observed for students in the music teaching program in the TRNC. The data for the communication skills of 66 students studying music teaching in Near East University and Girne American University have been obtained through a "Communication Skills Inventory", the data for their self-esteem has been obtained through the "Rosenberg Self-esteem Inventory" and their attitude towards music teaching has been measured through the "Scale for the Attitude Towards Music Teaching". The data have been analyzed using a t-test, Pearson correlation, and one-way ANOVA. A weak correlation between attitude and communication skills, a weak correlation between attitude and self-esteem and a moderate correlation between self-esteem and communication skills was determined. The attitude, self-esteem and skill scores do not seem to change depending on the gender or the high school from which the student graduated. The communication skills scores seem to decrease as the classes increase.
