An Evaluation of the Elementary School Teachers’ Music Education Program



Abstract Education has a practice-based structure. Therefore, it is important to investigate problems experienced in school education which are part of this system and to obtain opinions of teachers about these problems. A teacher is a guide who enables students to accumulate information. One way of reaching information is through books. Contemporary education approaches have a more complex view on teacher’s competency to learn and teach. The ability of a teacher to make an objective assessment is correlated with the teacher’s capacity of developing an innovative, inquiring, and creative personality that enables him or her to evolve through the processes of perception and evaluation and through the preparedness for and feedback about events encountered throughout his or her past educational life. In this sense, the contribution of the music course to the development of personality should be taken into account.
