Technological innovations cause significant changes in educational environments as in all areas of life. Thanks to software, the locomotive of digitalization, innovations are experienced in many branches, from teaching materials to the teaching environment. Software products have influenced every stage of music, from production to distribution. This study aims to determine the level of music teachers' attitudes toward music software, which is one of the most important reflections of technological advances in music. The survey design was used as the research method. Attitude Scale towards Music Software was used as a data collection tool. The online scale was sent to 416 music teachers in the Ankara-Çankaya region in the 2021-2022 academic year. According to the research findings, music teachers' attitudes toward music software are reasonable. While teachers' attitudes towards music software show a significant difference according to their gender, professional seniority, and the type of school they work in, there is no significant difference according to their undergraduate program.
