As with other practice lessons in education, instrument training also collides with its own unique problems during pandemic. Therefore, it is thought that the experiences of Turkish instrument educators regarding the process will create new discussions. The research was conducted by analyzing the findings obtained from semi-structured interviews with 14 participants with a phenomenological model. Considering the findings of the study, it can be seen that distance education conditions affect the instrument educators and the instrument training process both positively and negatively, and these effects bring some practices to the experience of instrument training permanently, possibly irreversible from now on. In the study, it was seen that an important source of the problems experienced by the instrument educators during the distance education process was related to technical facilities, such as connection speed and software.
