The 2018 Human Development Report published by the World Bank defines teacher motivation as one of the factors leading to a crisis in education, as manifested by the high turnover rate. Although the turnover rate among teachers in Turkey is not as great as the rate in the world, it is known that teachers are not satisfied particularly with their salaries. According to Ministry of Education datas, approximately one million teachers are preparing the young population for the future in Turkey. In this process, teachers’ work motivation and job satisfaction levels can affect educational outcomes. The present study aims to explore the relationship between music teachers’ work motivation and job satisfaction by focusing on a specific group. The subject was handled within the framework of Herzberg’s dual-factor theory. Understanding how motivated and satisfied teachers are with their work makes relevant educational investments functional. Doing so also helps identify the problems related to teachers’ motivation and satisfaction that need to be addressed. Based on the subscales shaped by the data obtained from the scales, new policies can be developed in the educational sphere. The study, conducted in the second semester of the 2019-2020 academic year, enrolled all the music teachers (N=104) working at the primary and secondary education levels in the city center and districts of Tokat located in the northeast of Turkey. The data were collected by the Work Motivation Scale, Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire, and Demographic Information Form. The teachers answered on the online platform after completing the permissions, ethics committee event, and research permissions from the authors who make up the scales. The data set is collected here and transferred to the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences. The data were expressed as mean and standard deviation, and the T-test and ANOVA were used. In addition, the Pearson correlation test and simple linear regression analysis were used. Our findings indicate that music teachers have low levels of work motivation and job satisfaction and that there is a relationship between work motivation and job satisfaction.  Teachers’ extrinsic motivation levels vary according to teaching experience and age, and their job satisfaction levels vary according to teaching experience. Also, the work motivation of music teachers affects job satisfaction
