In this study, the attitudes of students in the departments of music education (part of the departments of fine arts) in three universities across Turkey, towards the individual instrument training classes have been examined. For the purposes of this research, the various demographic features of the students have been studied in relation to their individual instrument training. The working group of this study is comprised of senior students (N=358). According to the results obtained, it emerges that there is no difference “in their attitudes toward the training” in respect of gender or according to which universities they had graduated. However there is a difference in attitude in terms of the universities in which they study in their universities and instruments.
