The aim of the study is to evaluate the relationship between speaking as a musical expression tool and music in effective communication according to teachers’ opinions. The qualitative research method is used in this study. The data were collected with the ‘opinion form’ that prepared online and consists of three open-ended questions. The research group consisted of 400 teachers, 131 of whom music teachers and 269 of whom other field teachers. The results of the research are that body language is at the forefront of communication tools other than music; musical expressions are mostly used in speech; emotional expression and effective expression are common aspects of music and speech; and music teachers are willing to learn this strategy. Training arrangements for teachers to use body language and speech effectively are in line with these results, and in-service training programs for music teachers to develop a musical expression are among the suggestions.
