Traditionally musical education is regarded as preparing musically gifted children for the profession of a musician. The holistic personal development including socio-emotional skills is often ignored. For this reason, the researchers aim to map the experience of music teachers of non-formal education institutions (music school) in the areas of socio-emotional skills development. Relying on the theoretical literature analysis, the in-depth interview questions were prepared for teachers while following the CASEL model of systematic socio-emotional education at school. 10 music school teachers participated in the study. The findings were analyzed using qualitative thematic analysis, highlighting the main themes, and looking for connections between themes and sub-themes. Research results revealed 6 main themes: from the possibilities of personality formation in the music school; recognition and regulation of emotions in musical education; ability to set and implement educational goals; the importance of following the rules and agreements; creating mutual relations to responsible decisions making while studying at a music school. The content of the mapping results demonstrated the increasing emphasis on the importance of the influence of musical education on the socio-emotional maturation of a person. It became clear that teachers have every opportunity to encourage children to recognize emotions and, after naming them, offer students various ways of regulating emotions. However, it is worth to note that during the lessons major focus is centered around learning the musical piece. Self-regulation methods, centered around the development of socio-emotional skills come to attention mainly before the concerts, without stressing them during each lesson.
