In this study, two different applications were made for elaboration and attention strategies and the results were evaluated. The same subject is explained with different applications in two different applications. Two different experimental and control groups were formed for conducting the study. Applications were made for the strategies with groups (2 experimental, 2 control) whose ages are between 8 and 10 and taking piano lesson. The common topic chosen for both applications was chosen as nuance signs on the piano. In the first application, the nuance signs were explained with simulations in order to understand and learn the difference. In the other application, the warning signs were used to detect and apply the signs at the right time. In the applications, the performances of the students were scored and their success was observed and the scores and statistical procedures were made. Parametric measurements were preferred for the statistical process and independent sample t test was applied between the groups. In elaboration process significant differences were found in the experimental group and the experimental group was found to be more successful. In the second application based on the attention strategy, it is observed that there are significant differences for the experimental group albeit at a low level.
