Abstract


OPINIONS OF MUSIC STUDENTS IN TURKEY, POLAND AND SERBIA ON TRADITIONAL VOCAL MUSIC EDUCATION AND COMPOSITIONS

Throughout our education, we are taught and get acquainted with many traditional vocal music compositions such as school and children's songs, lullabies, rhymes, carols and anonymous folk songs. At universities with professional music departments, vocal training for traditional musical compositions is provided as well. The traditional vocal music training process may vary in relation to the mission of the universities and the music departments, the demands of professors, elective courses or compulsory courses in these departments. In this study, it is aimed to determine the opinions of the students who received/receive vocal training lessons in different types of music schools in Turkey, Poland and Serbia about the traditional vocal musical compositions that they have brought from the past and learned within the possibilities offered to them from various perspectives. The research was carried out using the descriptive survey model, one of the qualitative research methods. This study examines the opinions of the students, who receive or have received musical training in the music departments of various universities in Turkey, Poland and Serbia, on traditional vocal musical compositions, and in this regard data from 111 participants has been collected through surveys. The data has been tested in the SPSS program. The findings differ from country to country, and the participants in Turkey have put emphasis on the fact that the traditional vocal musical compositions can be forgotten in the coming years if no new arrangements of these songs are made by the contemporary performers that use piano, symphonic orchestras and similar musical instruments. It has been determined that the participants in Poland like to sing the original/traditional forms of traditional vocal music works less than in other countries. The participants in Serbia have stated that they are able to perform traditional vocal musical compositions if accompanied by symphonic orchestras and instruments.
