Abstract

Societies have different ways of transferring the products they created within their own cultural structures by using the basic elements of music. We see that some societies use verbal transfer, some societies use written transfer, while the other societies use both means of transfer. The signs, which are the basis of music theory and the tools of written language, are called "notes", and the text created with these signs is called "musical notation". This study was conducted to examine how music education terms emerged in the historical process, the beginning of using musical notation due to the need for notes among Turkish people, and the creation and development process of terms used in music education in Turkey. For this purpose, the development and dissemination of music theory from past to present were examined by a literature review, and the different opinions and historical information found in the literature were presented together. Also, the introduction of Classical Western Music to Turkish people, their interaction processes, and the changes that occurred regarding the musical sense as a result of the Westernization movements were examined in the study. In this process, particularly the developments in European music had a worldwide influence
