The study group consisted of 12 students who are studying in the Department of Music Education, Faculty of Education, Mugla S?tk? Kocman University in the Spring Semester of 2018-2019 academic year. These students were selected according to their success points in MIOY III course (Musical ear training, solfeggio and writing III) in the previous semester.
