Merhaba.

Recently I´ve been told that there are situations when you can use "oynamak" in the sense of playing on a musical instrument (instead of çalmak). Is that true? If so, can you describe the examples, please?

"Oynamak" to be used for " to play a musical instrument ? ---> NO [ At least I haven´t heard " those situtations" in my life ]

in english
you can play a guitar
a child can play with his toys.

 

in turkish

gitar çalabilirsin.

çocuk oyuncağıyla oynar.

 

in rare stuations, "gitarla oynayabilirsin", this shows that you dont know how to play it and you treat that musical instrument as a child´s toy! hitting its strings ramdomly and making random sounds.

Benim bildiğim bütün muzik enstrumanları "çalınır". Ney bir istisnadır; ney "üflenir".

Başka istisnalar bilen var mı ?

It is interesting to note that Turkish language considers radio, tape player, record player etc. as musical instruments too. They are all "çalınır".
