The disappointments of Nurse Jones, who is well-known by education researchers working in burnout have been seen frequently among teachers in recent years. Research results show that, contrary to the established perception existing in society, music teachers are one of the groups that experience burnout most heavily. The international literature offers a rich knowledge on this subject. However, in Turkey, the literature in which we can discuss the subject has not yet matured. There is a need for empirical research on the subject. The purpose of the study is to examine whether the burnout levels of music teachers differ according to gender, seniority, institution, and participation in in-service training. The study, structured according to the survey model, was carried out with 48 music teachers. The data were obtained using the Personal Information Form and Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educators Survey. ANOVA, Kruskal-Wallis, t-test, and Mann-Whitney U test were used for data analysis. The results showed that music teachers' burnout was not differed according to gender, seniority, institution, and participation in in-service training.
