In this research, it is aimed to present the applicability of Web Based Distance Education (WBDE) method in instrument (guitar) education for Fine Arts High Schools. In accordance with this purpose, a web-based experimental study is developed within the scope of synchronous and asynchronous models for guitar education. The research is carried out in two different study groups in the 2017-2018 academic year at Aydın Doğan Fine Arts High School in Turkey. In order to evaluate web-based instrument education, the first study group is formed with 8 students in the 11th and 12th grade who have taken guitar education, and the second study group is formed with two students who have never studied guitar in order to evaluate the initial guitar education.
In the research using mixed method, pretest-posttest matched control group random experimental pattern method is applied within the scope of quantitative method, interview and observation techniques are applied within the scope of qualitative method. Guitar performance grading scale (GPGS), initial guitar education basic behavior evaluation form, individual instrument course attitude scale, guitar course achievement test (GCAT), structured course observation form and interview form are used as data collection tools for the research.
In the research, the pre-test and posttests used for collecting quantitative data are analyzed and interpreted by the Mann-Whitney U which is test the nonparametric counterpart of the significance test of the difference between the two independent groups means in the statistical analysis method and by the Wilcoxon test, which is the nonparametric counterpart of the significance test of the difference between the two dependent groups means. The opinions of the students about the experimental study are analyzed within the scope of descriptive analysis method and the themes and codes which are determined as a result of the analysis are interpreted.The data obtained by the observation technique are analyzed and interpreted by using a structured course observation form.
According to the results obtained from the research, it is concluded that the instrument (guitar) education program of Fine Arts High School could be applied by WBDE method and this method could be used as an alternative to traditional instrument education.
