Karahan, Ahmet Suat
Educational Research and Reviews, v9 n23 p1266-1274 Dec 2014
It is clearly seen that distance education, spreading all over the world recently, is increasingly used in music education process. That the method brings great flexibility to the teaching-learning process destroys the limits depending on time and space and it can easily reach wide audiences and so on outstanding features are the main factors behind its choice. The applicability of this important method for the Ear Training course was seen to be a current topic worth investigating in the present study. For this reason, it was aimed to determine the applicability of the simultaneous distance education method in the context of Ear Training course. The experimental method (pre-test-post-test) was preferred and an experimental group consisting of 14 students and a control group consisting of 14 students were formed and the groups' ability to hear multi-voice (interval and chord) and to write dictation (rhythm and melody) was compared. The data achieved in the experimental setting was interpreted with the independent t test according to the p<0.05 level and as a result of the research, it was stated that there was no significant difference between experimental group students who had synchronous distance Ear Training lessons and control group students who had traditional Ear Training lessons. In addition, it was observed that the experimental group students and control group students could easily communicate with each other and that the experimental group students had a great motivation for the lesson. The research results were discussed with a variety of scientific research results and various proposals were made. The proposals made according to the research results were about the importance of the method's applicability in the context of different courses and its contribution to the music teacher training process in Turkey.
