The aim of this study is to develop a musical self-efficacy belief scale for students who take education of pre-primary. Therefore, this study is a scale development study. This study was carried out on 253 students that trained in Giresun University Faculty of Education Pre-School Education Department. In this context, the aim of the scale was determined and a item pool was established. Item pool contains item for the case to be measured. In the item pool, firstly, 38 scale items were determined by the researcher and 5 scale likert type scale was chosen. Nine items that are too similar to each other or thought to be unsuccessful in measuring implicit variables have been removed from the item pool to obtain content validity. Draft version of the scale reduced to 29 items were pre-applied on 86 students studying at Giresun University Faculty of Education, Preschool Education Department. After factor analysis, 9 items with factor loadings below 0.5 were removed from the scale."Musical Self-Efficacy Belief Scale", consisting of 20 items, has been developed that is subject to validity and reliability analyzes within the scope of the study. Scope validity, criterion validity and construction validity studies were performed to test the validity of the scale. Internal consistency and item analyzes were used to test the reliability of the scale. As a result of this study, it was found that developed scale is valid and reliable. Consequently, it is possible to say that this scale is a data collection tool that can be used in music education field.
