Kodály claimed that the most urgent task is to make the means of music culture accessible for as many people as possible, primarily through the schools. It is clear that Kodaly’s philosophy can be involved in music education at schools in order to find ways to include all students in musical learning all over the world through social and cultural transformation. In this study it will be discussed the possibility and necessity of being involved in Turkey as school music education programs and questioned how and why this inclusion will occur.
