The purpose of this study is to develop a valid and reliable scale to identify the strategies students who study instrumental music use during the practice and learning of instrumental music based on their own responses. The study group comprised of 358 students studying music education in five universities in the academic year of 2015 to 2016. The scale developed within the scope of this study includes five dimensions: attention strategies, rehearsal strategies, elaboration strategies, articulation-organization strategies and comprehension monitoring strategies. The scale has 39 items. There are seven items in the attention strategies dimension, five in rehearsal strategies dimension, six in elaboration strategies dimension, seven in articulation-organization strategies dimension and 14 in comprehension monitoring strategies dimension. The factor loading values of the items in the scale ranged from 0.513 to 0.813. Reliability coefficients for the scale's sub-dimensions were found to be 0.89 for attention strategies dimension, 0.81 for rehearsal strategies dimension, 0.85 for elaboration strategies dimension, 0.87 for articulation-organization strategies dimension and 0.93 for comprehension strategies dimension. It is believed that the scale will be a powerful tool for researchers in explaining levels of strategies students use during the practice and learning of instrumental music.
