By Aida Islam and Stefanija Zelenkovska Leshkova


Due to the enormous and complex responsibility, the teacher's education is of the utmost importance in the development of knowledge and skills in a systematic way. Hence, the aim of the study programs in educational faculties is to develop competences and skills of future teachers for each subject area separately. The musical abilities of the future teachers represent the basic prerequisite for absolving the knowledge and skills in music courses with all the provided curriculum topics and contents. In order to achieve great educational benefit with optimization of music education, in this paper, the musical aptitude of the future teachers was tested. For that purpose, the students at the UKIM Faculty of Pedagogy "St. Kliment Ohridski" in Skopje, R. North Macedonia in the academic year 2018/2019 were revealed by the application of the standardized music test, first implemented in 2017/2018. According to the given test scores, the results of the aptitude level of musical skills are determined through low (0-20%), medium (21-79%) and high level (80-100%). In the frequency distribution of this research, the scores that prevail are in the range of the medium level of musical aptitudes (tonal 54%, rhythm 64%, composite scores 54%). The relation between the low (tonal 44%, rhythm 34%, composite scores 46%) and the high scores of musical aptitude (tonal 2%, rhythm 2%, composite 0) of the responds are disproportional. The obtained results i.e. the weaknesses in the rhythm and melody abilities of students initiate different ways of their mastering of the musical activities on the courses through a sequential study of the musical matter. This approach enables an objective aid to the teacher in assisting students to make the best use of their musical potential and achievements through appropriate music instruction and opportunities.
