Ear training is the most basic building block of music education. This training forms the basis of music and instrument education given in both formal and non-formal education. This course, which aims to develop the musical ear of individuals, also leads students who have just started fine arts high schools in many subjects. Ear training course includes cognitive goals as well as psychomotor goals thanks to applied goals such as intervals, solfeggio and dictation. It can be said that these psychomotor goals contribute to many lessons in the music department. One of the lessons contributed by psychomotor goals is instrument lessons. For the students who have just started their instrument education, the psychomotor goals acquired with the ear training enable the instrument lessons to be carried out more systematically. For this reason, it is thought that the psychomotor goals related to the terms of rhythm patterns, intervals knowledge, tonality knowledge and loudness in instrument education should overlap with the psychomotor goals in ear training. In this study, the 9th grade course book of Western Music Theory and Practice - Turkish Art Music Theory and Practice within the ear training given at the fine arts high school; within the scope of instrument education, the 9th grade Instrument Education (Cello) course book was examined. In this research, the exercises, etudes and pieces in the 9th grade course books of Turkish Art Music Theory and Practice - Western Music Theory and Practice and Instrument Education (Cello) were examined in terms of psychomotor. This research is a descriptive research and qualitative research methods were used. The model of the research is the case study. The universe and sample of the research consists of 9th grade Instrument Education (Cello), 9th grade Music Theory and Practice and Turkish Art Music Theory and Practice course books in Fine Arts High Schools, which is a music education institution in our country. During the data collection phase, the document analysis data collection technique was used. The analysis of these collected data was analyzed using the content analysis technique.
