It is an important fact that Music education increases social, emotional and psychomotor skills of individuals, especially children, and contribute positively to their self-confidence and self-development. In the 20th century, it has been observed that music education and training has become more systematic and the teaching process has been accelerated thanks to the emerging methods. These systems,which are used to strengthen the child's musical memory, to increase his capacity and to provide preliminary preparation for teaching an instrument, have achieved more effective results with the participation of movement and percussion studies. It has also been proven that musical perception and skill can be increased with studies starting from a young age. In light of these developments, we will take a glance at how music scientists such as C. Orff, Z. Kodally, S. Suziki and J. Dalcrose created their well known systems and how they are being used worldwide nowadays.Moreover, we will review the usability of these methods in education and training of Turkish folk music. This study is vital in order to draw attention to the problem that these and other similar methods are not well understood and practiced enough systematically in our country and it is also important to address the gap in this field.
