Hand-making musical instruments with children is a widespread crafts activity, and also a strategy to overcome the shortage of musical materials in preschools in Turkey. In this paper, hand-making musical instruments in preschools in Turkey is investigated as alternative to ready-made musical instruments in terms of their strengths and weaknesses, by gathering opinions and insights of 10 preschool educators as experts through semi-structured interviews about the making and using phases of handmade musical instruments.
