This study aims to profile the use of Turkish folk songs (including lullabies), rhymes, and the Turkish Maqam Music arranged for piano and flute. Twenty two piano and seven flute textbooks published in Turkey between 1967 and 2015 have been examined. Examination of the books has been based on ten criteria. The books were profiled according to their textbook level, the genre of pieces used, whether or not they are arrangement books, information about regions the songs belong to, information about modes, information on lyrics and composers, information about tempo and dynamics), information on musical terms and signs and ornaments. Also, twenty-seven songs were determined to be the most frequently used in the books and their common areas of use were evaluated. The study adopts the survey method, which is a descriptive method. The study is intended to guide piano and flute instructors with findings based on data. It is proposed that students are going to be more inclined towards easier and more effective teaching methods using pieces and exercises produced in their own culture.
