Abstract Motivation is an important factor in musical instrument training as in any other part of education. In piano training, from the beginner level, students’ motivation may have an affect positively or negatively on the process of their adjustment to the instrument and their academic success.

In the research, hypothetical ground is created with a literature review about motivation. In the study, firstly, the “PEMDÖ” motivation scale is applied to students by the researcher, secondly, according to the results, questions for conversations are prepared for the students who have low motivation, and then with the qualitative research method, identified problems are attempted to be solved. Questions for conversations with the students are open-ended and each answer students give is categorised descriptively.
