The pre-school period when the brain is developed the most rapidly forms a strong ground for the cognitive, language, motor, social and emotional development of the child. Therefore, children grow very quickly especially in their first six years of life which is named as the pre-school period and in these development areas, they become complete in every respect with an amazing speed. Thus, this will result in having the child achieve his/her own potential and be a productive member of the society. Education is the head of the most effective processes in shaping, directing, changing and developing individuals and societies. Contemporary education is carried out by being organised within a framework which includes the three general subject areas named as science, art and technique. As for music education, it forms one of the most important branches of fine arts education as an education of art having vocalic and auditory qualities. It has a significant place within pre-school education. In this context, the pre-school education program lastly prepared in 2013 in Turkey was studied and a content assessment was made directed towards music education in this research.
