The training of a music teacher's voice, via the examples in his own culture can contribute to getting better results in music education. Therefore, it is believed that transition to Contemporary Turkish Music and then to universal music from our traditional music may be much easier. Accordingly, the use of national resources in voice training is seen to be quite important. In this context, Bursa Folk Songs, whose piano accompanied arrangements were prepared for voice training, and also were trained for one semester by the voice training instructors of three different departments of music education that train music teachers, and then those instructors were interviewed to evaluate the contributions of prepared piano accompanied Bursa Folk Songs for voice training to the field. As a result of the survey, it has been determined that music teacher candidates need to have an extensive repertory, full of examples from their own culture, the repertory of piano-accompanied folk songs is not enough in quantity, and piano accompanied folk songs have both technical and musical contributions during the voice training process.
