Journal of Education and Practice, v8 n8 p176-184 2017
Present study is a descriptive and applied study from different sides. It was aimed to make the applications prepared for the usability of Erzurum's folk songs available in music and instrument education. First literature review was conducted and totally 240 folk songs were determined to belong to Erzurum province. Among the songs determined, three were selected randomly and analysed for their modal structure and adjusted to viola. Pre- and post-test control group experimental model was used in the study. It was found from the result of the study that Erzurum's local folk songs adjusted to viola can contribute greatly to vocalisation and performance and at the same time motivations of students. As in the present study, the use of folk songs in other provinces than Erzurum in music and instrument education is very important for students to know and evaluate their own cultures.
