All Rights Reserved.This study examined the period in depth by taking the instructors’ perceptions on distant violin education practices in the first semester when the pandemic first hit. For this purpose, semi-structured interviews were held with 29 instructors working in 16 among 26 music education departments. Thus, by making a maximum variation, a significant part of the music teaching departments in Turkey was taken as a sample (65%). The data were collected via Google Meet and Zoom interviews and analysed thematically with MAXQDA software. As a result of the research, it has been determined that the instructors think distance violin education is unsuitable for violin education in many aspects, especially the inability to give immediate feedback, physical intervention, motivation, communication, and technical problems. However, some instructors also point out that distance violin education has positive aspects in terms of self-control, self-development, rewatching the courses, meticulous work for the course recordings, and repetition.
