This research has been done by experimental method. The perception performance of the students who are at the last class in mathematics and Turkish departments have been compared. The student in mathematics department represent logical and mathematical mental field and the students in Turkish department represent Turkish-linguistics mental field. Today, learning music early has an importance, to identify of the mental field of our children and to develop and to grow the whole mental field have been the target of the educators. In conclusion, there occurs a result that musical perception is closer to logical-mathematical mental field than Turkish-linguistics mental.
